I was charged an extremely low fee in comparison to what I gained, and indeed: in comparison to what I had already paid in advance to the non to the non performing but ever-promising Thai legal law firm I had previously approached for help. I was treated with dignity and honesty and have no hesitation in recommending this particular law firm to anybody needing help as regards matters Thai.

    Je continuerai à faire appel à eux, notamment pour acheter un terrain et faire construire une maison d’hôtes.” –

– Cyrille R., France. (work in Buriram 2007 until now (2013), still a current client)


Debt recovery

  • “It was a tough situation for us with our Thai customer refusing to pay us. Then Isaan Lawyers got involved and we got all our money back. They were top-class professional but charged us such a reasonable fee. I definintely can not say the same about lawyers elsewhere, especially those in Hong Kong.”

– Li J., Hong Kong, China. (Case in Bangkok)

– Nigel F., UK living in Thailand. (work in Chayaphum)


  • “Isaan lawyers assisted me with my divorce, my Thai friend in Australia suggested to just go to the Amphur and sign the divorce papers, simple she said. I then contacted Isaan lawyers, they suggested to also make a divorce agreement, straight away that made better sense to me, never know the ex might be able to claim something latter on, this way is  all over , no surprises from the past come to bite you and you can get on with your life. They also translated and notorised the divorce document. The divorce was made easy as I my lawyer at my side,  who could explain everything to me. I did not pay my now ex wife anything, not even money for travelling, after all she is the real winner, she wasted my time and has recieved over the marriage period a large amount of money from me. Any way the main thing is Isaan lawyers saved me again when I really needed help. You have a very happy client.”

– Douglas B., Australia. (work in Udon Thani 2013)


  • “I’ve worked as a government lawyer myself for many years, and I’ve had some court experience too, and I know precisely what I’m looking for, when I choose a law firm abroad to represent me in a legal case.

In Thailand I regrettably had to go through a divorce with my Thai wife after a very short-lived and unhappy marriage. My wife surprisingly didn’t want to settle things amicably, but chose instead to put forward legal and extensive financial claims against me.

Isaan Lawyers made a solid divorce agreement that protects me from any further financial losses that otherwise might have occurred, stemming from the period of our short-lived marriage. The divorce agreement effectively prevents my ex-wife from putting forward any further financial claims, both now and later.

The work from Isaan Lawyers that was produced in my case, is of a high legal quality, and their work methods are thorough and extensive. They leave no relevant stone unturned when they prepare a court case. They serve their client’s best interest – also in the long-term perspective, which is equally important as the short-term perspective.

And they did all this at a reasonable rate.

I’ll gladly recommend Isaan Lawyers to anyone who is in need of legal aid.

– M. (The client wished not to publish his name or country), Scandinavia. (January 2014)  


  • “Thank you very much for your advise and also for your candor.  I appreciate everything.”
– Dwight C., USA.
Real Estate, Family Law, Divorce and Banking
  • “Over the past 12 months a required a Prenuptial Agreement, a MOU document, a Mortgage document on a property and 2 Wills – this was done on the excellent advice from Sebastian here in Nakhon Ratchasima.
The advice turned out to have saved my bacon, so to speak.
As I purchased a home with a Thai lady who left me after only 6 weeks of moving into a brand new fully furnished home.
I managed to sell the property as the lady and I remained good friends.
The money was returned to me in full.
Thats when the fun started as I wished to send my money back to Australia.
It became a terrible stressful time for me.
The bank were being stubborn and pedantic as the home was not in my name. So I could not produce any evidence that the money I had in my bank account here in Nakhon Ratchasima came from the sale of the home – that’s were the Mortgage document proved to be worth it’s weight in Gold!!
The bank was still refusing to send my money back home so I called on Sebastian for his valuable assistance.
Well, he walked into that bank and quickly sorted that lot out!!
My money is now safe in my Australian bank account.
I can highly recommend a visit to the Isaan Laywers website for advice and assistance if you have any problems with regard to property or an intended marriage to a Thai lady.
Book and appointment and talk to Sebastian before you recklessly get into a financial agreement with a Thai lady.
Sebastian has lived in Thailand for the past 12 years and has gained such valuable experience in all aspects of Thai law.
In my opinion there is no substitute for experience.
Good luck everyone – take CARE !!
Sincere heartfelt thanks to Sebastian and his wonderful staff.”
– Arthur B., Perth Australia (Work in Nakhon Ratchasima, 2018)

Custody of Children (Thai, foreigners, dual citizenships and international custody)

  • “Thank you everyone for all your work on my case. We got a very good result today at the court. Many thanks and well done for a great job, Khun Terd, Khun Oui and Sebastian.”

– Eyal, Isreal (October 2017)

  • “My son, a US Citizen, was at his wit’s end last year when he hired Isaan Lawyers to represent him in a very difficult custody case.   His son’s mother had made it impossible for him to have any type of relationship with his son.  After extensive research, he called on Sebastian Brousseau for help.  Sebastian is very professional, was always available to answer my son’s questions and provide guidance.   There was never any doubt that Sebastian cared about his client.    He proved himself to be trustworthy and effective.    Sebastian and his legal expert Khun Terd worked tirelessly and successfully defended the case in a Thai Family Court.   Khun Terd is an excellent trial lawyer and a skillful negotiator. The lawyers’ experience and keen attention to detail left no ‘stone unturned’ when preparing for the case.   The results far exceeded our expectations.

    For a grandmother who has been longing for eight years to see and hold her  grandson, the trial outcome was a very precious gift that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thanks to Isaan Lawyers, I was able to visit with my grandson and can now have a relationship with him.   Would I recommend Isaan Lawyers to my family and friends?   Without any hesitation, I would say that our experience with Isaan Lawyers was a very positive one.  I have the highest regard for Mr. Brousseau and Mr. Terd and would absolutely recommend Isaan Lawyers to anyone in need of legal help.

– Leonite G., USA. (August 2014, case in Koh Samui)

  • “My wife-to-be did not have full custody of one of her two children. We had not succeeded in prior negotiations with the child’s father so we engaged Isaan Lawyers to pursue the custody matter in court. The matter was settled in our favour through careful negotiation by one of the Isaan Lawyers team, Khun Terd, during the course of our court proceedings. We are very happy with the result and the professional and dedicated manner in which our case was handled.”

– Russell, Australia (September 2012, case in Korat)

– Dan S., USA. (November 2010)


Real Estate Law – Property Contracts

  • “I was recommended Isaan Lawyers through a fellow countryman who is also a client. My wife and I live in Phuket, where everything is overpriced like there is no tomorrow and with the recommendation from my friend, I wanted to give a law firm from “out of town” a try. I was a little bit hesitant at first, but after dealing with Sebastian and his team, all of that is gone. The support and prep-work beforehand was excellent in everyway and for the first time since long, I have the feeling of not beeing ripped off. I am truly grateful for the services provided and I will return with any future needs I might have. I now consider Isaan Lawyers to be “my lawyer in Thailand” and I feel comfortable of recommending them to anyone.”

Debt recovery from a Thai lawyer

The Thai lawyer wanted me to invest in Thai cable TV company, I declined and wanted him to refund my money, tried many times, emails and telephoning, always delays, he even offered to pay me interest, I was getting nowhere, I contacted a friend  who has been living in Thailand for many years, he has had personnel experience many times how a Thai lawyer working for him, has changed sides when the other person was a Thai.  I explained my situation to my friend, he recommended Isaan lawyers, to quote his words ” he has had only good reports about Isaan lawyers”. In 2010, I hired Isaan Lawyers. Through Sebastian, I was always updated about news about my case, even sent documented via email,  it was a very very long process (2 years). But the final repayment of my money was sent into my bank account in Australia. I recommend Isaan lawyers, they gave good advice, I found it easy to understand,  they never lead me to believe what was not a possible outcome. And the fees are not excessive.”
