About Us

Post Falls Law was an Inspired Idea

After several years working in a small office as a solo-practicing attorney, Jonathon Frantz discovered that the community of Post Falls did not have any attorneys providing services or help for its community members, but instead depended on Spokane, Coeur d’Alene, and Hayden lawyers.

In 2016, to address the lack of local services, Jonathon decided to establish Post Falls’ very own law firm with an aim to provide local, quality legal representation for each general practice area of law: Business Law, Real Estate Law, Estate Planning, Criminal Law, Family Law, and Civil Law. Hiring others to fill in the gap of Jonathon’s skills, Post Falls Law was created to provide counsel for each and every problem which the community of Post Falls might face.

While many people find the law to be overwhelming and complicated, Post Falls Law was founded upon the principal that law can and should be simple and straightforward. Jonathon believes that while the law may be serious, lawyers can be personable, informative, and responsive to their clients’ needs.

Jonathon Frantz

Founder/Attorney

Jonathon Frantz, a Kootenai County native, grew up on the back side of Hayden Lake and has lived and worked in Hayden, Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls, and Rathdrum. Graduating at the age of 16, Jonathon spent two years at North Idaho College before moving to eastern Spain for two years. Shortly after Jonathon's return, he attended the University of Idaho in 2004 -2006 while studying real estate finance. After meeting and marrying his wife, Katie, Jonathon obtained his undergraduate degree and returned to Kootenai County to work for a privately funded real estate development group. In 2010, Jonathon went back to the University of Idaho, School of Law to obtain his juris doctorate.

Jonathon graduated in 2012 in the top 11% of his class, argued in New York City for moot court, and did so at an accelerated pace taking up to 21 law credits per semester (which required special permission) all while having two children born during law school. Immediately after passing the bar exam, Jonathon opened up his own office in Coeur d'Alene. However, after several years of practicing in Coeur d'Alene, Jonathon learned that there were no attorneys or lawyers serving Post Falls. So, in 2016, Jonathon opened up the firm Post Falls Law with a vision of serving the people of Post Falls with all areas of law.

When he's not busy lawyering or wordsmithing, Jonathon is a husband and father of four, an avid road cyclist (winning local circuits and ranking in long distance races and rides), a runner, a budding pickleball enthusiast, and, in the winter, an experienced snowboarder. A people person, Jonathon's favorite part of the practice of law is meeting new people and helping them navigate their issues.
