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 one of the best family law attorneys in North Idaho, Jillian Roderick and the well-rounded, knowledgeable attorney, Kurt Schwab. 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, Jillian and Kurt 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.

Jonathon met his wife, Katie while attending school in Moscow and after completing his B.A. he was hired as a real estate managing executive for a luxury home development in Twin Lakes, Idaho. He and his wife purchased their first home in Post Falls and found that community to be a wonderful place to start their family.

Motivated to accelerate his education, Jonathon was given special permission by the Dean of Students to complete Law School early by assuming extra heavy classloads.

Jillian Roderick

Jillian Roderick is an attorney who is passionate about family law. She understands the legal impacts of divorce as well as the financial, emotional and day-to-day impact it can bring. She works tirelessly to be an advocate for her clients and focuses on reducing conflict and finding resolutions. Jillian understands that at the end of the day, she is not dealing with case numbers and pleadings, but is helping guide real people and children who are dealing with serious worries and concerns through the difficult road of divorce and child custody.

Jillian has over twenty years of experience working with families in crisis. She has a strong sense of social justice and commitment to the families and children she serves. As an attorney, she has worked for several law non-profits and private practices with the majority of her work experience being family law cases. Jillian’s vast background of experience has helped her develop the necessary skills to guide her clients through the stress provoking waters of family law issues.

A native of Boston (GO RED SOX!), Jillian’s tenacity and doggedness was displayed at an early age when she was the only girl playing on the high school hockey team. Her drive for life led her to achieve many educational pursuits, including attending St. Lawrence University where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Religious Studies. She was a member of the Political Science Honor Society and a proud member of Chi Omega Sorority. She then attended Gonzaga University School of Law where she was a Carl Maxey Scholar, a Thomas More Scholar and graduated with Honors. Jillian has also studied abroad in Denmark, the United Kingdom, Vietnam and Italy.

And while Jillian loves her Boston roots and is a major Red Sox fan, there is nowhere she would rather call home than North Idaho. She has been a volunteer with Coeur d’Alene Little League for 10+ years and has been on the board for the last 5 years. She has also been involved in local educational initiatives and local schools. Additionally, she donates her times and services to local non profits.
