That may not have quite the ring of the opening line to Sgt. Pepper but on this date in 1998, I opened Arnold Consulting Group for business. A bluff Democrat was in the White House, Congressional Republicans were overplaying their hands and the Washington Redskins were performing abysmally. Certain things in life don’t necessarily change.
Special thanks to all my clients through the years but above all to my colleagues at AT&T and the National Structured Settlements Trade Association, both of whom have been with me since Day One.
Profound and deserved thanks should go to many, many people but two in particular stand out for their guidance and support through the years: Jim Cicconi at AT&T and Randy Dyer of the NSSTA and more recently, Ringler Associates. For all their help, I am tremendously grateful. Honorable mentions are also due to former White House spokesman Mike McCurry and litigator extraordinaire Christopher Wolf at Hogan Lovells, both of whom have generously imparted their considerable wisdom through the years.
Thanks to everyone and be assured that every day, we will continue to work to earn your trust.
