Meet the Hallorans
The Halloran family has been in service to the City of New York since the 1800’s in a variety of forms. Dan’s great-great-grand-uncle, Daniel Joseph Halloran, fought a contested battle as a democrat to become an alderman for the City in 1890. This tradition of service followed into his immediate family’s life in Queens, and Flushing in particular, where he was born and raised and where members of his extended family have maintained a real-estate practice for over three-quarters of a century.
Growing up in St. Andrew Avellino Parish, Dan and his three brothers spent their childhood watching their father, Daniel James Halloran, Jr. work to better the city as a Deputy Commissioner in a variety of city agencies, in the role of a finance administrator and analyst. His father likewise served the City as a homicide detective-lieutenant in Queens as a member of the NYPD for nearly four-decades. Two of Dan’s brothers, Terence and Patrick now serve in the New York City Fire Department as a Firefighter and Lieutenant respectively, and his current law practice includes work on the Assigned Counsel Plan, providing legal services to the financially disadvantaged.
