Camille Vasquez

Inspirational Litigator Famous for her Key Role in Winning the Johnny Depp Defamation Case; Partner, Brown Rudnick

Having captured the nation’s attention as the “queen of cross-examination,” Camille Vasquez shares fascinating insights from the high-profile trial and reveals how individuals and companies can propel to new heights.

Many people around the world were consumed by the high-profile nature of the Johnny Depp defamation case, but it’s the behind-the-scenes stories that are both riveting and enlightening. Audiences will hear how members of the unique legal team were chosen, gain insights into their months of preparation and discover how—after more than 100 hours of testimony—the jury was convinced to rule in their favor.

A rising star even before she joined Brown Rudnick, Vasquez was named “One to Watch” by Best Lawyers in America for 2021-22. She has extensive experience handling reputation management and crisis communications, and more than 10 years of experience as a trial lawyer in high-stakes disputes, including other defamation cases. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern California where she studied communications and political science. She received her Juris Doctor from Southwestern Law School. 

A first-generation American born in San Francisco, Camille is the daughter of Latino immigrants—her mother is from Cuba and her father is from Colombia.

Speaking alone, or together with fellow attorney Ben Chew, Vasquez tells audiences what it took to build the case that was six years in the making and to-date has inspired an NBC documentary A Marriage on Trial, a sequel to the two-part Discovery+ docuseries Johnny vs. Amber and the scripted movie Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial which premiered on Tubi. Audiences will hear how members of the BR legal team were selected, gain insights into the months of trial preparation and discover why — after more than 100 hours of testimony — the jury ruled in Johnny Depp’s favor.
