Posted by a Military Law client, Flag
In the fall of 2012, I found myself seeking an attorney’s help. I had been a military widow for a year and in that year I had become very frustrated with the conduct of the command my husband had been a member of. I had been waiting for the Line of Duty determination to be completed. It was frustrating because it appeared no one had the necessary knowledge or skills to conduct the investigation in a timely or thorough manner. Once I did get the determination my fears were realized. My husband was found Not in the Line of Duty and Willful Misconduct. The circumstances of his death made this determination almost impossible. I could not fathom how they reached that conclusion. I decided I could not let the decision stand as my husband had invested a combined 18 ½ years in the USMC and then the Air Force Reserves. He had done that to ensure our family was taken care of and part of that plan was retirement from the military. With this determination those years were now wasted. I also was not going to allow that to stand on his military record.
After talking to a few different attorneys I found Bill Meili. I met with him in his office and he had told me it would be about a 45 minute consultation. I ended up being there for 2 ½ hours. I knew I had found a person who cared about what I cared about which was justice and doing what is right. We only had 45 days to appeal the decision but he was able to argue that notifications were not correct and due process demanded we have more time. He established communication with the command and through the next six months worked exhaustively on the case leaving no room for doubt that the initial determination was incorrect. It did take almost a year but we were able to reverse the decision and my husband was found In the Line of Duty.
I knew I had a meritorious case and I found the right attorney to help me prevail. He supported me and my family through a very trying time and I will be forever grateful. He is a dedicated, experienced and committed attorney. He helped me overcome my fears, find my voice, exert my power and find justice for my husband and my family.

I will allways keep his number and recomend him with any one that needs it .When everyone else turned their back on my son he was on our side and all ways returned our calls and explained our case step by step. He even called to ask how my son was doing after his case that proves that he cares and very loyal to his clients.
