About Us

About Our Firm

Post Falls Law was an inspired idea. After several years working in a small office as a self-employed attorney, Jonathon Frantz discovered that the community of Post Falls lacked ample legal resources and help for its community members. Post Falls depended on Spokane, Coeur d’Alene and Hayden lawyers. So, in 2016, Jonathon decided to establish Post Falls’ very own law firm. He knew that to accomplish his goal he would need to team up with the well-rounded, knowledgeable attorney, Kurt Schwab; dedicated bankruptcy practitioner Chris Williams; experienced criminal and civil attorney Allen Shoff; elder law- and business-law focused Bryce Myrvang; and skilled defense and family law attorney Courtney Gillihan. Together, with their impressive skills and experience, they are excited to provide the law services and legal counsel the beautiful city of Post Falls needs. Their areas of law expertise is vast and provides a wide array of legal help to the North Idaho area. Post Falls Law is founded upon moral principles, ethics and integrity. Jonathon, Kurt, Chris, Allen, Bryce, and Courtney believe that law doesn’t need to be complicated. They find simple solutions and keep law straightforward for their clients.

Post Falls Law… Simple Solutions. Straightforward Law.
