Daniel Scott Haltiwanger Of Counsel

Daniel Scott Haltiwanger helps people who have been harmed in accidents and by dangerous products, work that enables him to fight for positive change on behalf of consumers everywhere.

In one such instance, Haltiwanger examined a stretch of Interstate 20 in South Carolina between Aiken and Columbia. By poring through weather, engineering and traffic data, he determined that a faulty repaving job was to blame for many serious wrecks. The road was then repaired to prevent future injuries.

Similarly, he represented dozens of plaintiffs whose SUVs had rolled over following tire malfunctions amid the Ford/Firestone recall of the early 2000s. Litigation prompted both companies to change the design of their products.

Most recently, he has been very involved in class action litigation against two South Carolina utilities for the failure of a nuclear project that has extracted roughly $9 billion from the state’s ratepayers. One of the two utilities settled class action litigation, resulting in the largest private class action settlement in South Carolina history. Customers will receive $146 million in rebates and won’t pay more than $2 billion the utilities sought to collect. Litigation against the other party is ongoing.

A native of Columbia, South Carolina, Haltiwanger graduated from the University of Virginia in 1995 with a degree in International Relations & Rhetoric in Communications. He then attended the University of South Carolina School of Law where he was on the editorial board of the Law Review and also was a member of the Order of the Coif.

Following law school, Haltiwanger clerked for the Honorable Jean Toal during a pivotal two-year period of her career when she became chief justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court. That experience provided him with well-rounded, practical experience in many areas of the law.

He was hired as an associate for Ness, Motley, Loadholt, Richardson & Poole where he worked under Terry Richardson. In 2002, Haltiwanger followed Richardson to RPWB. A year later, he litigated and maintained much of the Barnwell office’s caseload as other attorneys served the needs of those who were killed, injured or displaced by the Graniteville train crash.

Haltiwanger lives in Aiken. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing for red drum in the tidal creeks and rivers near Edisto Island.
