The name of Hollywood star Johnny Depp’s lawyer, Camille Vasquez, topped social media, during the events of the legal battle between him and his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard.
The pioneers of social networking sites called Camille Vasquez the “hidden hero”, for her continuous assistance to Depp and her sharp defense with Amber during the defamation trial that her client presented against his ex-wife.
Young lawyer Vasquez (37 years) from California, USA, has captured the attention of millions around the world; but also their support, with many appearing dressed in clothes bearing her name and pictures, and a two-minute video of Vasquez in which she repeatedly interrupted Heard’s lawyer to protest, a legal term used to file a formal protest in court, garnered more than 30 million views on TikTok in the United States. in a few days.
Born in San Francisco to Cuban and Colombian parents, Vasquez graduated in 2006 from the University of Southern California, and graduated in 2010 from Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.
For the past four years, Vasquez has worked as an assistant at the high-profile Brown Rudnick Law Firm that Johnny Depp hired to represent him in the $50 million defamation case against Heard, and is one of nine attorneys from the firm who participated in the trial.
In 2021, she was selected as one of the lawyers for Better Lawyer magazine, specializing in litigation and arbitration, with a focus on representing plaintiffs in defamation cases, as she does with Johnny Depp.
