As the trial between Amber Heard and her former partner (Johnny Depp) continues, she has accused him of domestic violence. At the same time, Depp has claimed three counts of defamation for $50 million in damages from defendant Amber Heard.
As all of Depp's fans know, Depp sued Heard for an article she wrote in 2018 for The Washington Post, where she describes herself as a victim of domestic abuse. Although the actress of Aquaman did not mention her ex's name directly, Depp made claims for defamation and accused her of having made up stories of abuse to advance in her professional career.
Camille Vasquez, daughter of Colombian parents, has recently stolen the attention of millions of the actor's followers due to her clever strategy in representing Johnny Depp. According to The Evening Standard, a local daily newspaper in London, Vasquez is 37 years old and graduated from the University of Southern California in 2006 and the Law Faculty of Southwestern in 2010. Camille was mentioned last year among "Ones to Watch," according to Legal Best Lawyers. Vasquez is part of the team of 8 lawyers representing the actor in the trial.
After the last interrogation of the actress Amber Heard, Camille Vasquez drew the public's attention due to her impeccable strategies and attitude while on trial.
Born in Los Angeles to Colombian parents, Camille Vasquez is an associate in Brown Rudnick's Litigation & Arbitration Practice Group. Her current practice is focused on plaintiff-side defamation suits, with further experience litigating contract disputes, business-related torts, and employment-related claims.
The Johnny vs. Amber trial is about to end after the lawyers from both sides expressed their closing arguments on Friday, 27 May. Meanwhile, Camille Vasquez has stolen the attention beyond the two celebrities since her performance in the courtrooms has conquered various hearts.
Some of her most appealing actions include her objection to Elaine Bredehoft (lawyer on Heard's legal team), which has more than 17 million views. She got Heard to admit she didn't follow through on a promise to donate part of her 7 million divorce settlement to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).

But why has Camille Vasquez become an inspiration for Latina women? According to Lucero Chávez Basilio, President of The Latina Lawyers Bar Association, Latinas currently represent only 2% of the legal profession. Vasquez's role could potentially inspire other Hispanic women to study Law. "It's important for us to be seen as professional and competent, so we celebrate that Ms. Vasquez can be a zealous lawyer and that that's enough," Basilio says. "It's wonderful she can be a model or at least an inspiration for other attorneys.
There is no doubt Vasquez has inspired admiration and online adulation. She has been named as an inspiration for Latinas with legal aspirations. The American attorney with notable clients such as Kevin Fox or Steven Avery even mentioned: "Camille Vasquez is the unrivaled star of the Depp trial. Her measured tone, incisive questions, total command of the facts, and clear belief in her client are laudable."
