“I had filled out the contact message to figure out how I would move me and my children to Thailand for a long term stay and I was met with incredible service, I was contacted straight away via email, set up a phone call and since I had read everything on the website I knew most of what I needed to know – we decided to get the Thailand Elite Family Premium Membership  and we couldn’t be happier not having to deal with issues staying in Thailand, I will happily be referring my friends to the Hawryluk Legal Team!”

Candice Johansson

“As My first language is Mandarin, there are some things that I didn’t understand while speaking to some other agents, but as I contacted Thailand Elite Phuket I was met with a Chinese speaking lawyer who was able to fill me in on everything I did not understand and within a few days we began the application process, I am currently awaiting my approval but I cannot be happier with the service I was met with.”

– Xiao Lee Chen
