Caitlin Boehne is an attorney at Kaplan Law Firm.
Caitlin has been on the vanguard of the struggle for civil rights and racial justice in Texas for eleven years, spending the past nine years litigating impact employment claims for low-income immigrant workers. As a Senior Managing Attorney at the Equal Justice Center, Caitlin litigated dozens of employment claims for hundreds of workers in state and federal court. In the process of recovering over $1 million in unpaid wages and damages from unscrupulous employers, Caitlin has developed an expertise in handling individual, multi-plaintiff, and complex class action claims, on issues ranging from wage theft, to workplace sexual harassment, race discrimination, disability discrimination, labor trafficking, and more. Caitlin has argued and won dispositive motions, cross-examined witnesses at trial, and successfully resolved numerous cases in mediation and arbitration, including on behalf of monolingual Spanish-speakers. In 2023, Caitlin won a trial in federal court seeking unpaid wages and overtime for four construction workers.
