More often than not, Hollywood icons end up in courts. Be it a divorce case or a defamation lawsuit, Hollywood icons are no different than common mortals when it comes to knocking at the door of courts. However, they do not represent themselves in court.
Instead, they opt for celebrity lawyers to represent them. As these icons are highly popular, their cases also catch the eyes of the public. That is why the lawyers who represent them also come to the limelight.
For example, Stephen Cohen was the lawyer who represented Melinda in the divorce case against her ex-husband, Bill Gates. Thus, Robert Cohen became a big name in the entertainment industry.
Recently, the lawyer of Kim Kardashian, Laura Wasser, also made headlines as she represented Kim Kardashian in a divorce with her ex-husband, Kanye West. Although the divorce case of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian is yet to come to a logical conclusion, Laura Wasser has remained proactive throughout the trial. In turn, this adds up to her popularity and fame.
With that said, here are some popular lawyers who have been in the limelight for representing Hollywood icons in public cases:
Camille Vasquez Representing Johnny Depp
The foremost celebrity lawyer who came to the limelight recently is none other than Camille Vasquez – the lawyer who represented Johnny Depp.
The defamation case that Johnny Depp filed against her ex-wife Amber Heard was the most watched in the history of courts. Essentially, the case was a ‘ludicrous’ series of trials in and of itself.
However, the attorney won the case against Johnny Depp’s wife, who reportedly “defamed” the “Captain Jack” star in a Washington Post. Thus, the case became widely popular across the world as Johnny Depp won it. Likewise, it added to the popularity of Camille Vasquez, who represented Johnny Depp in the defamation trial.
Robert Stephen Cohen Representing Kanye West
Another popular lawyer who has made his name for representing celebrities is Robert Stephen Cohen. The divorce lawyer represented Kanye West in a notorious divorce case against his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. Although the case of a complex series of unending trials, the divorce lawyer has been practically advocating for the notorious rapper during the trial.
However, the two parties hardly came to an agreement despite many trials. Stephen has remained proactive throughout the trial – advocating for Kanye West. Although it was “unbecoming” of Robert Cohen to represent Kanye West, it has added to his fame in the industry.
According to the latest reports, the former love birds are finally set to make a settlement. And Stephen Cohen has played a pivotal role in bringing the notorious case to a logical conclusion. Reports tell us that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have agreed to make a settlement – to bury the case once and for all.
