Testimonials: Show Cause - Board of Inquiry


Show Cause BOI Action Withdrawn by Initiating Authority

As a Lieutenant Colonel with nearly 27 years of military service, three combat tours to: Iraq, Afghanistan, and Horn of Africa, and a solid track record of exemplary military service, I found myself in the difficult and awkward situation of being forced to go before a Show Cause Board in order to justify to a Board of Inquiry why I should be retained in the Army. Not only was my continued military career in jeopardy, but most importantly – so too was my good name and honor.

Given all that was at stake for my family and me, I embarked on a comprehensive search to find the best possible attorney to handle my case. Although there were many other well-qualified attorneys to choose from, Bill Meili's very specific past military experience and specialized military background helped set him apart from all others. After our initial phone interview, I KNEW that Bill Meili was the right attorney to represent me and my interests.

No sooner was the required paperwork signed, than Bill got to work on my case. During the entire process I found him to be responsive, thorough, and very engaged – with a sincere interest in the outcome of my case. At one point, Bill insisted he meet face-to-face with my fiancée and me in order to truly get to know me as a person and thus, better represent my interests.

In the end, Bill was able to deliver: Although I always felt that I had strong justifications on why I should be retained in the military, Bill was able to effectively articulate these reasons in a very clear, well-written, organized, professional and convincing manner – enough to convince two higher commands to approve Exception to Policies in order to withdraw my name from separation procedures, thus forgoing the need to go before the Show Cause Board.

The final outcome being that, with Bill's help, I was allowed to continue my military career. Bill's contributions and his handling of my case cannot be overstated. Like many of Bill's past clients, I too would not hesitate to call him again if the need arose, and would whole-heartedly recommend his professional services to anyone else who might need expert military legal counsel.

Thank you Bill, you're the best!
—  Lieutenant Colonel JR
