AVVO - Army Discharge Review Board
AVVO - Army Discharge Review Board Case on 19 Year Career
I simply cannot begin to say enough good things about Bill Meili. He is a lawyer who is always there for his client and is willing and able to go the extra mile any time that it is needed. Mr. Meili helped me extensively in a military law case in which I was discharged incorrectly. His attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the Army's extremely complicated appeal process are second to none.
My case was extremely complicated, spanning a 19 year Army career and multiple combat injuries. Bill did not hesitate to come to my aid as soon as I contacted him, working around my very busy schedule. He reviewed and analyzed literally thousands of pages of Army personnel records and medical records to ensure that I was receiving just treatment and given due process. Mr. Meili's review of my case was so thorough and extensive that he found a key fact that both myself and two other lawyers had missed, and that fact proved to be the pivotal piece of information in my case.
In addition to his excellent skills as an attorney, Bill lets you know very quickly that he is there for YOU and his authenticity and care for my well-being was a huge surprise from what I was expecting from a top-grade lawyer. Not only did he spend weeks exhaustively preparing my case, but he also spent several hours staying in close contact with me and continuously reassuring me that he was on top of everything. In addition to this ongoing reassurance and communication, Bill also spent hours listening to me about my case and my Army career so that he could know me as a person and not just a client.
Anyone looking for help in any circumstance where they feel alone or up against impossible odds can trust that Bill is the person to call. He is a Soldier himself who fully understands everything about military life after a 25+ year career. His ability to navigate military politics and understanding of the Brotherhood is valuable beyond measure. I can honestly say that I am proud to call Mr. Meili not only my outstanding attorney, but also my friend.

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.
