Camille Vasquez is a 37-year-old lawyer who has played a prominent role in the Virginia courtroom.

She is now based in Orange County and was an attorney at a national firm in Los Angeles before Brown Rudnick.
Camille was born in California and her nationality is American.
However, her surname Vasquez is of Spanish origin and her Brown Rudnick profile reveals that she speaks fluent Spanish.
Many people who have been following the trial are convinced that she is of Mexican heritage, but she has not confirmed this.
The 37-year-old gained her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California and Juris Doctor from Southwestern Law School.
She also took the bar exam in California and was listed on Best Lawyers’ “Ones to Watch” in 2021.
