“My 30 years of diverse legal work as an Arkansas attorney has prepared me for this judgeship. I have been an attorney at the Friday, Eldredge, and Clark Law Firm, a solo practitioner, and a law clerk to five judges on the Arkansas Supreme Court and Arkansas Court of Appeals. I understand the importance of hard work and perseverance. I put myself through college and law school. I faced and defeated breast cancer, and I was humbled to be named Komen Arkansas’s 2013 Honorary Survivor. Since my children are now grown I feel I have the time, and I know I have the dedication, to devote myself to this important position for the people of Arkansas,” said Hathaway.
“Every litigant deserves a fair and impartial judge who understands that each and every case can be life changing. I bring those qualities, and I offer the depth of experience needed for this judgeship. I have worked on literally thousands of appeals that have come before the Arkansas Court of Appeals, and I believe I have the knowledge and judicial temperament for this judgeship. I look forward to speaking with people in this District about my qualifications and asking for their vote,” she added.
Hathaway received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Arkansas Bowen School of Law and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She is a member of the Arkansas and Pulaski County Bar Associations, the Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers, and the Judge William Overton American Inn of Court. She was in the inaugural class of the Public Service Academy and a member of Class XXVII Leadership Greater Little Rock. Other community activities include Rotary Club 99, Komen Arkansas, the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, and the Board for the Home for Healing.
Hathaway and her husband, John, live in Little Rock and have two adult children, Caroline Baber and Jackson Baber.
