The highly publicized Johnny Depp-Amber Heard libel lawsuit has polarized social media and Depp’s senior status as a celebrity means much public opinion has formed in his favour. In this storyline, as courtroom moments have become instant fodder for conjecture and viral content, Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, 37, has become a favorite among fans of Pirates of the Caribbean star. She was also praised for her effective cross-examination of Heard, regardless of the outcome of the trial. His constant objections to the series of questions from Heard’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, also left Bredehoft visibly troubled.
Camille Vasquez is the undisputed star of the Depp trial. His measured tone, his incisive questions, his complete mastery of the facts and his manifest confidence in his client are commendable. #TruthWins
