If there’s one thing absolutely nobody can deny, it’s that an unwaveringly determined, feisty, and articulate Camille Vasquez essentially became a household name in 2022 thanks to her profession. After all, as explored in Netflix’s ‘Depp v. Heard,’ not only did she serve as counsel for actor Johnny Depp in his defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard, but she also didn’t hesitate to assertively square off against her once she took to the stands for her testimony. So now, if you simply wish to learn more about her — with a clear focus on her overall background, her career trajectory, as well as her current standing — we’ve got all the necessary details for you.

Camille was reportedly born on July 6, 1984, in San Francisco, California, to a working-class Colombian father and Cuban mother as one of two sisters, making her understand the importance of hard work at an early age. It thus comes as no surprise she made genuine efforts in school to successfully enroll at the University of Southern California upon graduation, where she pursued a Bachelor’s in both communications as well as political science. Then, she moved on to earn her Juris Doctorate from Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles (2007-2010) before ultimately kickstarting her career as a practicing lawyer by joining Manatt, Phelps, and Phillips LLP in 2017.

As per reports, Camille actually shifted to the Irvine-based Brown Rudnick LLP as an Associate a mere year later in 2018, only to gradually rise the ranks to such an extent her reputation helped her land a spot on Johnny Depp’s counsel team. Therefore, by June 2022, she was promoted to be the firm’s Litigation & Arbitration Practice Group’s Partner — a title she proudly holds even today, all the while working as its Brand & Reputation Management Group’s Co-Chair too. It’s hence undeniable this crisis plus stature management expert primarily helms plaintiff-side defamation lawsuits, contract disputes, business-related torts, and employment-related claims these days.

Coming to Camille’s personal experiences, according to the last accounts in 2022, she is in a happy, healthy, yet long-distance relationship with Englishman Edward Owen at the moment. “It’s quite a new relationship, but Edward is smitten with her,” a source told DailyMail in June last year. “He has visited Camille in the US since this trial [Depp v. Heard] started, and she plans to visit him in the UK as soon as the case is over. It’s long-distance and they’re both high flyers in their respective careers, but they’re hoping to make it work.”

Moreover, once rumors of Camille being involved with the renowned actor started circling online platforms during the lawsuit owing to their closeness — which she later deemed “sexist” — she made it clear that her WeWork Executive boyfriend has paid no heed to them. “He’s wonderful and supportive and loves me; has met Johnny,” the attorney candidly said in an interview with Access Hollywood. “He knows that I’ve worked for Johnny for four-and-a-half years now, so there was no issue there ever. He’s just wonderful and supportive.”

We should mention that Camille recently opened up regarding the infamous 2022 trial as well as the Netflix original production on it in another interview with Access Hollywood, as seen above. “It was fascinating,” she said, “just to see the way Emma [Cooper, director] put together the docuseries; I found it really interesting. She utilized the court testimony in a way that told a really compelling, truthful account of what took place inside those four walls.”

The lawyer, who has also represented other celebrities like Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, and Leonardo DiCaprio in the past, then added, “While we were there, inside, doing our jobs, we didn’t really understand the impact this case was having on social media all over the world. Towards the end, we started getting messages and people sending us things, but really, for the most part, we had no idea that there was this media-social storm brewing outside… We really were unaware, and I’m grateful… because we did have a job to do.”

As for how Camille felt watching herself on the screen, she expressed, “What I see is actually somebody that has always believed in her client and is a true advocate. I see my expressions to the evidence as it’s coming forward, and I very much knew the case — very, very well — and I knew the evidence, and I was advocating at all times for my client.” It’s also imperative to note that she has since been hired by NBC News as a legal analyst, making it clear that her life has changed for the better just by representing Johnny Depp.
