Johnny Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez flashes a smile ahead of the meeting at the UBS building in New York City 

Camille Vasquez, Johnny Depp’s attorney, gave a big smile for the cameras as she was photographed in New York City on Tuesday.

Vasquez  entered the UBS building in Midtown Manhattan for a meeting after successfully defending Depp  in the high-profile defamation case against Amber Heard. Vasquez has become something of a celebrity in her own right as a result.

As a member of her security opened the car door for her and held her hand as she exited onto the sidewalk, Vasquez was beaming.

It happens the day before a meeting between Depp’s legal team and Amber Heard’s attorneys to work out the last-minute details of his $8 million defamation judgement against the actress.

The sighting occurs as the deadline for a resolution of Depp and Heard’s defamation action approaches. In order to determine if a settlement can be made, the celebrities’ attorneys will meet in court on Friday.

Depp and Heard will be required to pay each other their imposed damages if they are unable to reach an arrangement by tomorrow. Trial Judge Penney Azcarate will submit the jury’s judgement on June 1.

The June judgement concluded that both celebrities had defamed one another, although Depp’s hand was far more favourable.

While Heard only received $2 million in damages from Depp, he received $10.35 million from her. Heard owed Depp a hefty $8.35 million in total.

Heard later acknowledged via her attorney that she was unable to pay those millions in damages, and a day after the verdict, her legal team announced that Heard would be appealing the decision.

Her stance on the situation has subsequently changed, though, and rumours are circulating that she intends to write a “tell-all” book to make money to cover the damages.

Heard was allegedly “broke” and unable to refuse money, according to a source close to her.

After a terrible few months, they claimed she “considers her career in Hollywood gone” and “had nothing to lose.”

Benjamin Chew, a lawyer for Depp, said that a settlement would be an option.

Chew said earlier this month on Good Morning America that Depp would consent to forego seeking damages from Heard in exchange for her declining to file an appeal.

‘We obviously can’t disclose any attorney-client communications, but as Mr. Depp testified, and as we both made clear in our respective closings, this was never about money for Mr. Depp,’ said Chew. 

‘This was about restoring his reputation, and he’s done that.’

Johnny Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez helps an elderly man having medical emergency on plane

Attorney Camille Vasquez has been praised and called a real-life ‘wonder-woman’ for her heroic actions in the court and now on the airplane. Recently while traveling from LA to New York City, an elderly man on the American Airlines flight collapsed and hit his head hard while walking past Vasquez and her bodyguard seated in the first class. She jumped into the action and rushed to the man’s aid.

TMZ reports that Johnny Depp’s 37-year-old lawyer allegedly sprung into action and attended to the man. Additionally, passengers on the aircraft revealed that Vasquez got in touch with her medical brother-in-law.

As her bodyguard removed his Apple watch to check the old man’s heart rate, the doctor-led Vasquez through a series of steps to see if the passenger had suffered any brain bleeding as a result of the accident or if he was having a heart attack.

When a surgeon was found on board the aircraft and was able to assist the elderly passenger, the emergency was soon resolved.

The airplane then diverted back and returned to Los Angeles, where medical personnel was waiting for the man, who had subsequently recovered consciousness, to be led off the aircraft and transferred to a medical care.

According to an American Airlines representative who confirmed the incident to TMZ, another flight attendant gave Vasquez two bottles, of champagne, and Merlot, and called her a “wonder woman” for her fast action in helping the passenger.

After successfully representing the 59-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean actor in the well-reported defamation trial against 36-year-old Amber Heard on June 1, the attorney rose to fame this year.

Vasquez expressed her gratitude for all the support she has received since taking on the role of the Hollywood actress during an interview she gave on Good Morning America on June 8.

She said: “It’s been surreal. If I’m being honest, a bit overwhelming. But if I can be an inspiration to young women who want to go to law school and study and work hard, then I’m all for it.”


The day before Depp’s team and Amber Heard’s attorneys meet to discuss the specifics of Depp’s $10 million defamation victory against his ex-wife, Vasquez’s heroic save also occurred.

According to the Daily Mail, if the parties are unable to reach an agreement by tomorrow (June 25), trial judge Penney Azcarate will file the jury’s judgment, which would oblige both parties to pay the other party’s order damages.

Depp was given a $15 million damage award, but owing to a Virginia state law issue, the sum was eventually lowered to $10.35 million. She received $2 million after he was convicted responsible for one count of defaming Heard.
