Johnny Depp's Latina Lawyer Camille Vasquez is Breaking the Internet One Objection at a Time

“Objection” took on a new meaning after the video of Camille Vasquez using the word repeatedly during the Amber Heard defamation trial took the internet by storm. Heard’s attorney, on the other hand, could be seen struggling with how to proceed with questioning after Vazquez’s interjections were sustained by the judge.

The confidence with which Vasquez proceeded in her own cross-examination of Heard left everyone convinced that this woman is a powerhouse who could probably audition for the lead role in “How to Get Away with Murder.”

Vasquez is fascinating to watch which left us (and the rest of the world wide web) with one question: who is Camille Vasquez, anyway?

The 37-year-old Colombian attorney is currently a member of the legal team representing Johnny Depp in his $50 million defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard. The highly-televised (and often inadvertently entertaining) trial is now in its final week.

Sexist rumors have been making the rounds that Vasquez may be dating Depp, which have repeatedly been debunked. The recent attention has instead shifted focus from the impressive lawyering Vasquez is doing to cheap headlines that no one is producing of Heard and her lawyer.

Vasquez is alumna of Southwestern Law School ‘10 and University of Southern California ‘06, where she graduated magna cum laude. Vasquez was also named “One to Watch” by The Best Lawyers in America for 2021-2022.

We can only hope to continue to see Vasquez shine as the proceedings continue - we know the internet is certainly wanting more and she’s showing how Latinas get it done.

As a Chicana, a lesbian, and a feminist, Anzaldúa was set to challenge a predominantly Anglo-American and heteronormative society in a way that would forever change the discourse surrounding queer and Chicano identities.
