KingSpry congratulates Partners Kristine Roddick and Jerome Frank who have been named to the 2022 Power List Law by the editorial staff of Lehigh Valley Business.
The list was published in the December 5, 2022 edition of the newspaper and is available on their website at www.lvb.com.
Kristine Roddick has been a partner at KingSpry and chair of the Special Education Law Practice Group since 2008. A member of the firm’s Executive Committee, she served as Managing Partner of the firm for six years.
“Industry recognition is always wonderful, but in 2019, I was named a Zephyr Graduate of Distinction,” she said, referring to the recognition awarded her by her alma mater, Whitehall-Coplay High School. “That honor meant a lot because it is important to always remember where you come from and be grateful for those things in life that help propel you toward your goals.”
She has learned there is no such thing as failure. “Rather, there are teachable moments that take you forward, step by step, toward success,” she said.
Jerome Frank is a senior partner with KingSpry focusing his practice in business and real estate law.
Seeing projects spark and thrive is what he finds most gratifying, he said. Frank has represented Lehigh Carbon Community College for over 50 years, as the institution has grown from a two-building campus into a regional community college serving Lehigh and Carbon counties.
In addition, for many years, he has served the Allentown Economic Development Corp. as it reclaimed and developed industrial and commercial properties in Allentown. Since 2012, Frank said, he has helped the Allentown Neighborhood Improvement Zone Development Authority “reimagine and revitalize Allentown’s downtown and riverfront areas.”
In their free time, he and his wife, Sally, love to travel. “We try to explore as many parts of this country as we can,” Frank said.
