This month’s Staff Spotlight is Tonjai Smith. Tonjai serves clients in our Texarkana, Texas office and has been with TKL for 1 year. Outside of work, Tonjai enjoys spending time with her family. She’s happiest when she’s with family and riding ATV’s. When asked what she’s most grateful for, Tonjai said “I’m most grateful for my family. Family doesn’t always have to be blood.” Tonjai and her husband, Stacy, share four sons: Braxton, Dean, Parrish, and Chanton.
Tonjai enjoys traveling, as well: “My favorite place to travel is Nassau, Bahamas. I’d love to travel to Williamstown, Kentucky to see the Ark Encounter one day. And her favorite place in Arkansas is Diamond Crater State Park in Murfreesboro.

Favorite thing about working at Taylor King Law? I love helping our clients. I feel like I can make a difference by helping someone in some kind of way. Even if it’s asking a small question like “do you feel like your treatment is helping your progress,” many clients are surprised when asked. It lets them know we are concerned and we care.
