About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

I am the founding attorney of Hathaway Law Group, P.C. L.L.O. with offices in Omaha, Nebraska and Kansas City, Missouri. Mainly my practice is focused on alternative options for those seeking a divorce or dealing with family law issues, that is custody, property, and support. These alternatives include options such as uncontested-attorney assisted divorce, mediated divorce, and collaborative law divorce, but the special emphasis I like to make is that we strive to help all our clients find a non-litigated option. We find that non-litigated options are less expensive, less emotional, and overall a much better experience for our clients. I look forward to speaking with you.

Great attorney!
I recently had the pleasure of working with Rich. I was referred to him by an old partner of his & it definitely did not disappoint. Rich was quick to respond to my inquiry of questions/my problem with my current family court case. He led me through what needed to be done & how to accomplish that without consideration of only wanting funds for it first. He was readily accessible via email & phone with prompt responses. Rich was more than just an attorney, you can tell he truly cared about the outcome for me & was willing to go the extra step for me to insure I was doing what was best for me in my situation not just what had to be done. He was also honest, which I can truly appreciate. He was upfront about what he could & couldn’t do instead of just taking money & finding out later it wasn’t workable. I can’t thank him enough for his expertise & help. I would hire him in a heartbeat & absolutely refer him to others.

We used Rich 3 years ago for a Modification in a not to easy case. He was very understanding and helpful with the situation and stayed on top of everything. He knew we did not want to make it any harder than it was and made sure to review all aspects and tell us the outcomes. Very pleased with him to say the least! I have contacted him over the last few years since then and he has always been there for the questions when they have come up. Family Court is usually not ever easy and he makes sure to do as much as possible for clients and think of all of the outcomes. Rich is very reliable, knowledgeable, respected in the courts, and affordable as well. We will continue to use him if we need to in the future.

True Professional and Expert in Family Law
Richard Hathaway is a true professional and expert in the field of family law. He handled my very difficult case, during COVID, and fought for a reasonable settlement, saving me tens of thousands of dollars in legal bills. Rich will not pull any punches and will give you an honest assessment of the situation. He won't tell you what you want to hear. He will give you his honest assessment of a situation based on case law and the current legal environment. He is prompt to respond to questions and his accounting is easy to follow.

Professional, Responsive, and Hard Working
Richard Hathaway is a must call attorney for anyone who wants results. After getting relocated to a different state due to employment, I was refused the rights to see my children by the other parent. I contacted Mr. Hathaway off of a reference from my spouse's employer and I couldn't have asked for a better blessing. Mr. Hathaway started representing me in 2020 and we settled our case just this month. If it was not for Mr. Hathaway and his abilities to explain situations, be up front and honest, and tenacious work ethic, I would still be fighting to see my children. Mr. Hathaway fought hard for my rights as a parent and never gave up fighting for my parental rights. After a year and a half, we got the results we were looking for at a very good price. Mr. Hathaway works for you, not the paycheck!! I can't thank you enough Mr. Hathaway.

Professional and Reliable
Richard Hathaway is a true professional. He helped us navigate guardianship at a very stressful time for our family. He always answered my questions and was reliable. If needed, we would go back to him again.

Did a great job with my Child guardianship case!
Richard was very responsive and was always in communication with me about my case. The case got postponed many times due to the pandemic and he saw it thru to the end.
