Parrish Jones, the former financial officer of Entellium charged with fraud, has hired prominent Seattle criminal defense lawyers to handle his case.
Jeffrey Robinson, Amanda Lee and Colette Tvedt of the firm Schroeter, Goldmark & Bender are representing Jones in U.S. District Court. He and Entellium Chief Executive Paul Johnston are accused of overstating revenue for years to lure millions of dollars in private investment.
Robinson is one of the best-known trial lawyers, and Lee specializes in white-collar criminal defense.
Jones, who is free on bond, waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday.
