As soon as Johnny Depp's defamation trial against Amber Heard began, the world tuned in to listen to constant accusations made in court. Depp filed a suit against his ex-wife because of her op-ed for The Washington Post about domestic violence.

Recently, Depp's lawyer, Camille Vasquez, became a name many knew for cross-examining the “Aquaman” star and undermining her credibility before the jury.

Vasquez grilled Heard about why her ex-husband hadn't made eye contact throughout the trial. “You know exactly why Mr. Depp won't look back at you,” the lawyer said before playing a tape where the actor promised, “You will not see my eyes again,” following their divorce.

She asked several questions about claims of Depp physically hurting Heard on separate occasions. Heard made it clear that she was abused, even highlighting that Depp would always wear heavy rings with the hand that would strike at her.

However, Vasquez always followed her questions with facts that negated the actress's statements. She showed several pictures taken days after Heard's alleged accusations took place, and in all these instances, there were no signs of swelling, bruising, or bleeding, among others. No medical records of her injuries were also presented in court since she did not seek professional help afterward.

With everything that has been taking place in the trial, many wonder who Camille Vasque is. Let's take a closer look at Depp's attorney.

WHO IS CAMILLE VASQUEZ?

Vasquez graduated from the University of Southern California in 2006 and the Southwestern Law School in 2010. At present, she is an associate with the Litigation & Arbitration Practice Group of the law firm Brown Rudnick. On the firm's website, as told by Mirror, she is described thus:

“Camille is adept at formulating offensive and defensive litigation strategies for private clients. She also has extensive experience handling parallel reputation management and crisis communications issues arising from these engagements.”

Sources believe that Heard's team plans to have the opposing side testify again. However, this may not be a good thing for Heard as the jury has grown to believe and like Depp.

From 2021 to 2022, Vasquez won the Best Lawyers in America Award for Ones to Watch Commercial Litigation.

IS JOHNNY DEPP DATING HIS LAWYER CAMILLE VASQUEZ?

Naturally, given that Depp is her client, Vasquez and the actor have been working closely together. This has prompted some onlookers to believe that they are dating.

“There is a risk that he is going to have more time in being likable on the stand when it's actually Amber Heard's time to present her case,” attorney Katherine Lizardo said.

Previously, Heard mentioned a rumor about Depp hurting his ex-girlfriend, Kate Moss, which made the “Sweeney Todd” star's lawyers celebrate. According to sources, mentioning Moss was a positive thing for Depp's camp, and it is likely that his lawyers will use this to win their case.
