Mr. Meili took the time to review my case, get to know me personally, and develop an effective strategy to fight for my rights. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney when the stakes are high. A true professional who keeps his word to defend you to the end!
Bill Meili is an extremely hard working, experienced, and professional lawyer. He has provided me with invaluable advice and has helped me through a difficult time. I am very grateful for what Mr. Meili has done for me and I highly recommend him.
Bill Meili has been a blessing to my family and me. He was able to articulate and express one of the hardest chapter in my life to a panel which resulted in favorable action.
Mr. Meili has represented me in a USAF administrative matter. He has been attentive, honest, and when necessary, supportive. Objective assessment of case based on vast experience. Sets realistic expectations. Highly recommend for military and/or criminal defense.
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 anytime 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 lawyer's 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 re-assuring 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 first contacted Col. Meili when I was working in D.C. and again a few years later when I was practicing in Colorado. On both occasions Bill promptly returned my calls and was more than generous with his time and vast expertise. As a fellow practitioner in a much different area of law, I was able to gain some context and invaluable insights into a pretty complex set of issues I was unfamiliar with. A skilled and dedicated professional who cares deeply about obtaining the best possible outcome for his clients - Bill is a leader in this field and I appreciate his professional courtesy.

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.
