Jonathon Frantz

Jonathon’s first priority as an attorney is to those around him.  He believes that each and every individual in the great state of Idaho should be able to defend and preserve themselves in a court of law. Jonathon cares deeply about not only meeting his clients’ goals but exceeding them. His uniquely dedicated and creative personality lets them know that they’re in the best hands possible. When speaking with Jonathon, the law is immediately easier to understand. He is determined to be the best lawyer he can be for Northern Idaho. His love for the area makes sense, he was born and raised here in Kootenai County. His passion as a North Idaho native has been a strong influence throughout his life and especially his education. After graduating high school at 16, he completed two years of college at North Idaho College before serving a two-year mission in Spain for his church. Upon returning stateside, he studied business and Spanish at the University of Idaho. He graduated with a General Studies degree, emphasizing in those two subjects, in 2007.

Jonathon met his wife, Katie, while attending school in Moscow. 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 the community to be a wonderful place to start a family. After four years of managing real estate, Jonathon decided to pursue a law degree at the University of Idaho College of Law. He even demonstrated his motivation by completing the program a semester ahead of time! He graduated honors with a Juris Doctorate of Law in 2012. He was also the first law school graduate with a “Business Law Emphasis.”

When not helping the community with their legal problems, Jonathon enjoys road biking. He is an active member of the Mountain View Cyclery sponsored team. He thoroughly enjoys the outdoors and can often be found hiking, running, and swimming. He spends much of his time involved in community leadership. He could be coaching parks and rec soccer teams, attending church services, volunteering for triathlon and biking events, or leading the local Boy Scouts of America.  Above all else, Jonathon is a family man and a devoted husband and father to his wife and four children.

Jillian Roderick

Jillian’s passion for family law cannot be understated. She deeply understands the legal, financial, emotional, and lifestyle impacts a divorce can incur. She works tirelessly to both advocate for her clients and focuses on reducing as much conflict as possible. She seeks resolutions like no other. Jillian understands her job is not simply about case numbers and pleadings, but instead about people. She is guiding real families dealing with serious concerns through the difficult roads of divorce and child custody.

Jillian has been helping families through crises for over twenty years. She has a strong moral compass and uses it to serve many families and their children. As an attorney, she has worked for several law non-profits and private practices. The majority of her work experience, though, has been family law cases. Her breadth of experience has helped her develop the necessary skills to guide her clients through the stressful waters of family law.

A Boston Native and Red Sox fan, Jillian displayed her tenacity and doggedness early on by insisting on playing high school hockey despite being the only girl on the team. Her overall zeal led to many educational pursuits. She first attended St. Lawrence University and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Religious Studies. She was a member of their Political Science Honor Society and also a proud member of the Chi Omega Sorority. Afterward, she attended Gonzaga University School of Law as a Carl Maxey Scholar, a Thomas More Scholar, and an Honors graduate. Jillian also studied abroad in Denmark, the U.K, Vietnam, and Italy.

Even though she is a staunch Boston and Sox fan, there is nowhere Jillian would rather call home than northern Idaho. She’s volunteered for the Coeur d’Alene Little League for more than 10 years and has been on the board for the last 5. She also involves herself with local educational initiatives and schools. On top of all of this, she donates her time and services to local non-profits.

Jillian and her husband have four children. You’ll often find her at the ball fields if she’s not in the office. She also enjoys travel, photography, and all the outdoors North Idaho has to offer.
