IRR Mobilization Exemption Case

IRR Case Study #3


Appeal of an IRR Involuntary Mobilization Exemption Case; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD




This case involved representation of a Soldier on appeal. He had submitted his own case initially, and the Commander HRC ST Louis denied his request. He then called our office for representation on appeal.

We submitted initial materials for the appeal within two weeks of our client's unfavorable decision. Then, once the appeal was properly opened, we still had to make a full presentation in time for the case to be considered by the Delay and Exemption Team in ST Louis. We did that.

Our client had failed to put sufficient evidence in his initial file, and St Louis acted accordingly in denying his petition. When we were retained, we did a comprehensive review of his entire military and medical history, both active duty and Reserve, and following those early phone interviews, we outlined a plan for him to follow. He did everything necessary.

Armed with new and sufficient evidence, we perfected the appeal to St Louis in a timely fashion.


On 20 February 2009, about a month after we submitted our initial brief, our client received official word from St. Louis that his appeal had been granted and that his exemption was now approved. Our client's honorable discharge should be processed within four to six weeks from the appeal approval date.


Taking a case for an injured, confused and angry Soldier who had little idea how to properly prepare an appeal, and working that appeal through to a successful conclusion.

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.
