Ms. Correia is a nationally recognized Title IX litigator and has extensive experience advocating for employees who have faced discrimination or retaliation in state and federal courts for more than 24 years.

In 2016, Ms. Correia settled a Title IX retaliation and sex discrimination case against the University of North Florida for $1.25 million. Also in 2016, she helped resolve the retaliation claims of employees at the University of Oregon who took a stand regarding UO’s handling of confidential records in a student sexual assault case and settled the claim of an employee who exposed sexual misconduct at a private high school in Baltimore, Maryland, successfully defending against an asserted religious exemption under Title IX.

Previously, she successfully negotiated the $3.4 million settlement of a Title IX retaliation case against Florida Gulf Coast University, and achieved the reinstatement of a high school lacrosse coach who had been fired after advocating for her players’ rights under Title IX. She also has successfully litigated and resolved claims of pregnancy, sex, race, age, and disability discrimination for her clients.

Ms. Correia served as co-counsel to the plaintiff class in Hartman v. Powell, a gender discrimination class action that garnered a settlement in the amount of $508 million, the largest award in the history of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and shared the 2000 Trial Lawyer of the Year award presented by Trial Lawyers for Public Justice for her work on that landmark case.
