Show Cause Boards
Show Cause Boards of Inquiry (BOI)
Show Cause Board … Board of Inquiry (BOI) … Intent to Eliminate … or Field Board of Inquiry (FBOI) — By whatever name they all mean essentially one thing: your military career hangs in the balance. With the drawdown and budget cuts taking center stage, letters of Intent to Eliminate and Show Cause Boards (BOIs) are being issued and convened with increasing frequency. And whether the basis of the Show Cause is misconduct, substandard performance, a GOMOR in the AMHRR or OMPF, a referred OER, or some other derogatory information, you need expert help to navigate the difficult, confusing and emotionally charged weeks and months ahead.
If you've received notice of Intent to Eliminate from your local GOSCA (General Officer Show Cause Authority), or from the CG of Human Resources Command (HRC), at Ft. Knox — please give my office a call at your earliest convenience. The sooner I can engage, the better chance we'll have to mount a winning defense and save your career.
I contacted Col. Meili as a fellow practitioner to gain some context and perspective on a pretty complex set of issues. Because I practice in a different field of law, Col. Meili's extensive expertise was invaluable and he was more than generous with his time. A skilled and dedicated professional who cares deeply about obtaining the best possible outcome for his clients, Bill's a leader in this field.

After an exhaustive search of military attorneys, I came across the name of Bill Meili. From my first email exchange and telephone call, I knew that Bill was the right person to handle my case. I had discussed my unique circumstance with a handful of other attorneys who felt it may be too difficult to achieve the outcome that I was seeking - but Bill was interested in me and my case, and wholeheartedly believed that we had the ball in our court. I could tell that Bill cared about me as a person and soldier, not just viewing me as a paycheck.
