Camille Vasquez has received a career boost from her law firm Brown Rudnick after becoming an overnight sensation while representing actor Johnny Depp in the defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard.
During the six-week trial, Vasquez earned notoriety for her cross-examination of Amber Heard.
The firm tweeted the news saying Vasquez has been promoted to partner after winning the case.
“We are pleased to announce that Camille Vasquez has been elevated to partner. She was a key member of the litigation team that won a jury verdict last week for actor #JohnnyDepp in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard,” the tweet said.
In her response, Vasquez said, “I am delighted that Brown Rudnick has given me its full vote of confidence by having me join the partnership. I’m proud of the uniquely talented team I’ve had the privilege to lead, which exemplified teamwork and collaboration, and I look forward to continuing to represent Brown Rudnick’s culture of excellence.”
The law company said in a statement that they have traditionally saved this news until the end of the fiscal year.
“But Camille’s performance during the Johnny Depp trial proved to the world that she was ready to take this next step now. We are incredibly proud of her and look forward to what she will accomplish as our newest partner.”
