Lawrence M. “Trae” King III joined the Boleman Law Firm in 2019 as a law school intern. In 2020, he was admitted to the Virginia State Bar and immediately began practicing bankruptcy law as an attorney with the firm – he specifically helps clients understand and file Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 consumer bankruptcies.
Trae was raised in Virginia Beach and graduated from Kellam High School in 2013. Before attending Regent University’s School of Law, he was a music student at James Madison University and was widely exposed to the entertainment industry – he expertly performed various styles of music in different groups and trained in many subject areas such as composition, ear training, and audio post-production. He also served as the InterVarsity Chapter’s Worship Team Leader. During his study of artist management and the legal aspects of the entertainment industry, Trae strongly felt called to the practice of law.
While in law school, Trae was a board member and Negotiation Competitor for the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Board; Senior Technology Editor for the Journal of Global Justice & Public Policy; a Law School Chaplain, Small Group and Worship Team Leader; an intern for the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court; and an intern for a local Family Law and Criminal Defense firm. At graduation, he was recognized for the Dean’s “Class of 2020 Spiritual Leadership Award.”
Now, in his free time, he writes instrumental music under the name “TOREI” and vocally performs for the heavy metal band “Blame the Season.” He also volunteers, sings and plays guitar for his local church. He never misses an opportunity to comment on how his diligent practice of music and law complement one another. In his view, creativity and discipline go hand-in-hand – true professionals should strive for both.
