After all evidence of Amber’s guilt was made public, four lawyers refused to defend her. They were Robert Kaplan, Julie Fink, David Brook, and John Quinn. Interestingly, many of them refused to work, not because of an obvious loss in court, but because of uncomfortable business trips, which went up due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Some of the lawyers even supported Heard. So, Robert Kaplan admitted that Amber believes and is extremely sorry that he will not be able to defend her in court, but he is extremely proud that he can remain her adviser.
As a result, Amber still managed to find a lawyer. They became Elaine Bredehoft of Virginia. According to the team of Johnny Depp, the lawyers rejected Amber because she betrayed the Times Up Legal Defense Fund, which opposes domestic violence - one of the lawyers was its participant.
