The Thai Civil Law is a vast branch of Thai law. The concept of "Civil Law" is broad and, at the same time, often confusing or difficult to understand for the "layman." So many times, I heard clients saying, "She/he cheated me. I go to the police", only to be disappointed and frustrated when the police officer answers, "Sorry Sir, we cannot help you. You should refer directly to the Court." Language and mentality's barriers do not help either.
A good English-speaking civil or criminal lawyer in Thailand will, first of all, analyse the case and inform you if the issue can be classified as a "Penal felony," a crime, or as a civil infraction. Most importantly, he should warn you of the possible implications that filing of a lawsuit (criminal or civil) might entail and imply. The lawyer should also inform you of the timing, the costs, and the possible outcome.
