As a celebrity, avoiding legal trouble is almost impossible. However, throwing money at a problem is not always the optimal solution. Needless to say, having good representation when such occasions arise is crucial.
In this article, we will be highlighting some of the best celebrity lawyers and the cases they’ve fought.
1. Camille Vasquez
Camille Vasquez is the attorney who represented Johnny Depp in the defamation case against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. The court sessions were accessible to the public, and many were impressed by the grit, elegance, and boldness Vasquez exemplified throughout the case.
However, people were even more impressed to learn that Vasquez was only an associate at the law firm, Brown Rudnick, when the case first started. But now, she has been promoted to a partner in the firm.
Vasquez’s focus is currently on plaintiff-side defamation suits, and rumor has it that she will be representing David Dobrik in an upcoming case, albeit the public has mixed feelings about it.
2. Robert Kardashian
Robert Kardashian, Kris Jenner’s late husband, was a businessman and lawyer who specialized in criminal law. He attended the University of San Diego School of Law and practiced law thereafter. However, he let his license to practice law become inactive until he represented his friend and football player O.J. Simpson in a murder trial in 1995.
To this day, speculations around the case and whether Kardashian believed O.J. Simpson was guilty but still fought for him circulate. In fact, in an episode of the Late Late Show, Khloe Kardashian got asked by James Corden what it was like when her father was fighting the case.
3. Mathew Rosengart
Mathew Rosengart is a prominent attorney and shareholder at Greenberg Traurig, who has fought countless cases from violent crimes to public corruption. He has represented many celebrities, including Sean Penn, Matt Damon, and Kenneth Lonergan.
However, one of his most outstanding clients was Britney Spears. He ultimately helped terminate Spears’s 13-year conservatorship, and many of Spears’s fans have expressed their respect and admiration for his work as a lawyer.
Being put under the pressure of representing celebrities in high-profile cases is not easy, to say the least. However, these lawyers have shown tremendous discipline and professionalism both publicly and privately with their celebrity clients.
