Camille Vasquez: Everything you need to know about Johnny Depp’s lawyer

Camille’s legal journey

Vasquez is a partner at Rudnick Brown Litigation and Arbitration Practice Group. Her specialty is plaintiff-side defamation suits, which meant she was the perfect person to represent Depp.

Her bio on the company’s website says she has “extensive experience dealing with shadow reputation management and crisis communications issues arising from these engagements.”

She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern California in 2006 and later earned her JD (Doctor of Laws) from Southwestern Law School in 2010. Prior to working at Brown Rudnick, she worked at a national company in Los Angeles.

Prior to working on the Depp v Heard case, Vasquez had worked with numerous other celebrities, including Ben Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lopez. Interestingly, Camille wouldn’t have been Depp’s first choice of legal representation, with famed attorney Kathleen Zellner initially set to take on the job.

“The plan was always to have a lawyer cross-examine Amber and that’s why Zellner was brought into the case, she had the star power and the big reputation,” a source said. The daily mail.

“In reality, the decision to bring her in was made far too late and there was no way she could have caught up on it in such a short time. Vasquez isn’t exactly a rookie, but it’s unusual for a partner to take on such a big deal. But she was fully aware of the evidence and did a great job,” the source continued.


Who is Camille Vasquez in a relationship with?

The question of whether or not Camille was single, or rather whether or not she was romantically involved with Depp, became a strange focal point throughout the trial.

Depp and Vasquez were often seen laughing and hugging, which some experts say could have been a tactic by their legal team to paint Depp as the savior.

“His behavior in court puts Depp back in the romantic hero role,” said body language expert Judi James. The daily mail.

“For Depp’s loyal fans, these dramatic rituals will seem like validation. ‘If this beautiful, intelligent woman thinks he’s fine, then maybe he is,’ will be the underlying message.”

Vasquez was quick to shut down the rumors, calling them “sexist,” saying People that she was disappointed to hear people speculating about the details of her professional relationship with Depp.

“It’s also an unethical accusation. It’s sexist,” she told the outlet. “It’s unfortunate and disappointing, but at the same time it comes with the territory. I can’t say I was that surprised.”

More recently, Camille was caught on camera leaving a Washington Ritz Carlton with a 38-year-old British executive, Edward Owen, by TMZ. The couple are rumored to have been in a long-distance relationship since November last year, when they met in an upscale London pub.

Camille’s later fame from the trial

“If I can be an inspiration to young women who want to go to law school and study and work hard, then it was worth it,” she said, before adding that everyone experience was “surreal”.

It looks like she hasn’t quite finished the trial, as news recently broke that Vasquez, alongside her associate Benjamin G. Chew, will star in an upcoming docuseries that will focus on the trial.
