Daniel L. Haller

Senior Attorney

Current Role:

Currently, Haller is working on a special NLS Tangled Title Project funded in part by a Bank of America grant.  The project requires a petition in Orphans Court seeking transfer of title to residential property currently in the name of a deceased person to an heir who has lived in that same property for a year or more since the death of the owner.  The purpose is to allow the current occupant to become a tax paying owner. It is anticipated that having a titled owner will help to stabilize the neighborhood in which the property is located.  In addition, the new titled owner now will be able to procure loans to fund needed home repairs.

Previous Roles:

Haller has been a NLS attorney since being hired in 1974 by then director, R Stanton Wettick to staff  the  program’s new Beaver County office.  During his tenure with NLS he has practiced in various civil areas including domestic law, consumer law, bankruptcy and landlord tenant law.  He has also argued a number of cases in the appellate courts of Pennsylvania.

He is a former contributor to Pennsylvania Consumer Law in which he authored the chapter on Mortgage Foreclosure.

Haller has been a faculty member for various Pennsylvania Bar Programs dealing with bankruptcy and mortgage foreclosure.
