UQR approved for an HPSP member
Posted by CPT GC
Attorney William C. Meili is a retired Judge Advocate General Colonel. He knows very well the workings of military law and its cumbersome bureaucracy. I came to Attorney Meili with a request for his assistance in getting my Unqualified Resignation (UQR) packet moved up the usual bureaucratic chain. Until then the packet had stalled and was sitting at the Human Resources Command. Prior to working with Attorney Meili I attempted to contact HRC for multiple weeks seeking a status on my UQR. When I finally received a response, HRC's answer was not encouraging. I feared that my UQR would not get approved in time and worse, that it could even get rejected. As soon as I spoke to Attorney Meili he began working to assist me. From that moment, it had been a few hours before Mr. Meili had an accurate picture of who had my packet and what was needed to get it up the bureaucratic chain. After speaking to Mr. Meili for the second time, I hired him to assist me in getting my UQR approved prior to my school start date.
To attend medical school I needed my packet to get approved, at the latest, by August 2021. It was already late June when I contacted Mr. Meili and time was of the essence because HRC had informed me that, unless there was a change, approval was not expected until November - December. Mr. Meili started working hard on my case, giving me daily updates of the status of my packet. By the first week of August he succeeded in getting me discharge orders. HRC remarked that my packet was one of the fastest UQR packets to go through HRC, G1 and the Assistant Secretary of the Army's procedure. Mr. Meili knows very well what is required to get through the Army's bureaucratic process and his legal understanding is admirable. I owe huge thanks to Mr. Meili and his help. In large part because of his help, I can now attend medical school to pursue my dream. I give a 10/10 score to Attorney William C. Meili and his office for his efficiency, honesty and diligence in getting the work done.

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.
