I have a great love for exploring local cuisines and traveling.
My initial trips were during my academic years to South Korea and Taiwan, where I traveled to work on tax report projects with my classmates. As I progressed in my career, I was fortunate enough to travel to Europe and other parts of East Asia.

In my law office I face difficulties arising out during the legal process which mostly and immediately pop-up in the last minute before closing i.e. changing the term of payment, problem of transfer money from abroad, failure to furnish necessary documents required by the land office, invalid of Land Office Power of Attorney, expiration of passport, dispute of income tax of landlord/developer, even an incorrect of company minute of meeting etc. These are common issues that can cause a real estate transaction to fail, but I am prepared for the unexpected circumstances.

Why hire me?
Despite my sunny character and easy-going nature, I approach the issues that clients bring to me with seriousness.
I understand the fear and uncertainty that expatriates experience when making large transfers to purchase new homes, as I am well aware that things do not always go smoothly in Thailand. Rather than telling clients what they want to hear, I offer solutions based on facts and honesty because I care about their situation and future.
On the other hand, dealing with the inheritance procedures of a loved one who has passed away can be emotional. I realize the seriousness of the situation and compassionately guide clients through difficult times.
I love to share the results of my research supported with my legal experience.
