In 1995, Alicia successfully litigated a sexual harassment/hostile environment case against Tyson Foods, Inc., resulting in an $8 million dollar verdict. In 2002, she litigated a race discrimination case that stemmed from the denial of promotions to two African-American males, also against Tyson Foods. The jury rendered a verdict of $3.5 and $1.5 million dollars in the case.  She has had two separate cases heard before the United States Supreme Court, which resulted in favorable and per curiam opinions. One case, Ash, Hithon v. Tyson, significantly changed the standard in employment discrimination cases involving promotion decisions. 

Most recently, Alicia and Kenny tried a sexual harassment and retaliation case against Hyundai Mfg. wherein the jury awarded a $5.75 million dollar verdict.  Alicia has been  recognized in the 2007, 2008 and 2009 editions of Best Lawyers in America and The Best Lawyers in Alabama in the area of Labor and Employment Law.
