Kellee Boulais Kruse is a principal at The Employment Law Group® law firm, and has been an attorney with the firm since 2009.

She represents both private-sector and federal employees in discrimination claims, contract disputes, and whistleblower retaliation cases, including claims brought under state and federal statutes such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Energy Reorganization Act, and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.

Ms. Kruse serves as co-chair of the Employment Law Forum for the Women’s Bar Association of the District of Columbia, where she is an active member and a mentor for rising women attorneys. She also has conducted training seminars on equal-pay issues. Her service with the WBADC and elsewhere reflects a dedication to elevating the social, economic, and legal status of women through the law — something she strives for in her daily work, too.

In 2019, Super Lawyers recognized Ms. Kruse as a “Rising Star,” a honor based on peer evaluations and professional achievement. In 2022, Lawdragon ranked her as one of the top 500 plaintiff-side employment and civil rights lawyers in the country, and The Best Lawyers in America honored her for her skill in employment law and litigation.

Ms. Kruse has been with The Employment Law Group since 2006, when she was hired as a law clerk while attending The George Washington University Law School as an evening student. During her time with the firm she has gained extensive experience representing clients before state and federal courts, as well as administrative bodies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; the Merit Systems Protection Board; and the Office of Administrative Law Judges at the U.S. Department of Labor.
