                                             List of Attorneys
         In an effort better to serve Americans in Thailand, the U.S. Embassy has compiled the following list of
Thai law firms willing to assist English-speakers with a wide variety of legal concerns. Each firm listed below has
English-speaking attorneys on staff and in many cases, Bangkok-based firms are able to conduct correspondence in
English. Firms outside of the capital may not be able to offer a wide range of English services. It may be necessary
for Americans to hire their own translator.
         Firms are separated by location, with the largest number of firms located in Bangkok. This list contains
contact information for attorneys in the Central and Southern regions of Thailand only. Those interested in
attorneys practicing in Northern Thailand should contact the Consulate General in Chiang Mai by phone at (66) (53)
252-629. Inquiries may also be faxed to (66) (53) 252-633. The Consulate General is located at 387 Vidhayanond
Road.
         Please note: the American Embassy cannot guarantee the professional ability or integrity of these firms.
