Well, almost one year after the losing verdict, the trial as you should know is now being put back on display via Channel 4’s new three-part documentary Depp v Heard. The series which is from Bafta-nominated director Emma Cooper pledges to portray what the blockbuster events of last spring showcase about “violence, gender and the memeification of justice in the era of post-truth”.

And as Depp v Heard invites us to return back to those feverish days, here is a quick look back at the members of the legal team of Ms. Heard who became very much unlikely social media stars as a result of their parts in a real-life courtroom drama.

Elaine Bredehoft

Elaine Bredehoft, the lead attorney of Amber Heard has been a practicing litigator since 1984 in both state and federal courts in the states of Virginia, DC, and Maryland and she is also a co-founder and partner of the Virginia-based firm Charlson Bredehoft Cohen Brown & Nadelhaft.

Originally from Minnesota and then recognized as a specialist in employment law, Ms. Bredehoft as you should know is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

She enjoyed her fair share of memorable moments during the proceedings of last year, most notably drawing a grin from Mr Depp when she sportingly lowered her voice to impersonate him when reading out a transcript of a tape in which the actor had declared: “You will not see my eyes again.”

And more seriously, the attorney brought an affecting line from her client when she reportedly asked Ms Heard why her former husband cannot now look her in the eye and she then answered: “Because he’s guilty. He knows he’s lying. Why can’t he look at me? I survived that man and I’m here and I’m able to look at him.”

Adam Nadelhaft

The co-counsel of Ms. Brederhoft, who is also a partner in the same law firm, arguably provided the finest comic moment of the entire trial when he reportedly raised a “hearsay objection” to his own questioning of Ben King, the house manager of Ms Heard.

“But you asked the question,” perplexed Judge Penney Azcarate responded, bringing stutters of embarrassment from Mr. Nadelhaft and giggles from the opposition bench.

Ben Rottenborm

Also on Heard’s team bus was Ben Rottenborn of Woods Rogers, who also reportedly suffered ridicule at the hands of the many Johnny Depp fans that were watching proceedings play out online and was then the subject of several parody accounts as well as viral clips after Mr Depp was perceived to have gotten the upper hand over him during cross-examination.

When Mr. Rotternborn reportedly questioned the actor on whether he was inclined to drink whiskey in the morning, Mr. Depp sharply drew a laugh by asking: “Isn’t Happy Hour any time?”

“He’d handle it just about better than anyone else I know,” a former colleague, Jay O’Keeffe, told Insider.

“He’s extraordinarily level-headed. I suspect that nobody around here or at his firm would have been ready for the level of backlash this case is getting.”

Mr. Rottenborn in question graduated from Stanford Law School back in 2006 and was a partner at giant Chicago comp, and Kirkland & Ellis within six years.
