(IntegrityPress.org) – “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp has featured heavily in news headlines over the last year due to his legal battles with his ex-partner, Amber Heard. Heard, also an actor, wrote an article that allegedly implied Depp was abusive during their relationship, leading Depp to sue her for defamation. The lawsuit ended with the “Pirates” actor taking home $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Now, one of the attorneys who helped Depp emerge with this favorable result has landed herself a new job with the major news network NBC.
Camille Vasquez shot to fame after she helped Johnny Depp land a victory in his lawsuit, which was arguably the highest-profile legal action of 2022. According to a report by the Daily Mail, the 38-year-old was at the center of a battle between three large national networks to secure her services.

Vasquez made her first on-air appearance with NBC on the “Today Show” on Monday, January 9. She acted as a legal analyst in a discussion about the murders of several students in Idaho in November of last year. In a recent major breakthrough in that case, authorities arrested and charged 28-year-old Bryan C. Kohberger with the break-in and four counts of murder related to the tragic incident. Legal proceedings against Kohberger are currently underway, and he could face life in prison or the death sentence if the courts find him guilty of murder.
Vasquez hasn’t left the practice of law behind, even though she’s become a presence on TV screens. According to reports, she remains employed as an attorney with Brown Rudnick, a high-stakes litigation law firm representing public and private companies and multinational Fortune 100 businesses and start-ups. She’s a partner with the company and co-chairs its panel in charge of reputation and brand management.
Vasquez isn’t the first lawyer to shoot to fame after being in a high-profile case; Robert Kardashian became known worldwide after representing OJ Simpson in his murder trial.
