Everyone is tearing up Camille Vasquez, the young lawyer who saved Johnny Depp

At the opening of the defamation lawsuit brought by Johnny Depp against Amber Heard, few legal experts bet on a victory for the star of Pirates of the Caribbean. Worse, some lawyers, questioned by the American media, admitted that they would never have taken the risk of defending the interpreter of Jack Sparrow, after a first judicial defeat before the High Court of London, in 20200. This risk, Camille Vasquez, 37, took it willingly. And with a pugnacity that made her the revelation of the trial that fascinated the media around the world for more than six weeks.

For many observers, it was thanks to her fierce cross-examination, pointing out several contradictions in Amber Heard’s remarks, that she convinced the seven jurors of the Fairfax court to sentence the actress to 10 million dollars in damages and interests. “You wanted Mr. Depp’s money, you wanted good press, you wanted to be seen as a noble victim of domestic violence.“, she launched to him, in front of millions of spectators during a memorable audience.
