Rosemarie Arnold was born on June 9, 1962 to Iris Arnold, a school teacher, and Dr. Murray Arnold, an obstetrician gynecologist. Her dad passed away when she was 5 years old, leaving her mother to raise their 6 children in Washington Heights, New York. She graduated with honors from the Bronx High School of Science in 1979, where she was the captain of the women's swim team. In 1983, at age 20, Arnold graduated from The State University of New York at Binghamton, then headed to Brooklyn Law School where she was a member of the Moot Court Honor Society and captain of the negotiating team.
After graduating from law school in 1986, Arnold began her career at the Law Offices of Christian Stueben, where she represented predominantly large corporate defendants, such as Foodtown, Pathmark, Stop & Shop, Campbell's Soup Company, Arcola Bus Company, Bally’s Total Fitness, T.G.I. Fridays, Libby’s Foods and Cigna Insurance Company.
In 1989, feeling unfulfilled with defense litigation, Arnold founded The Law Offices Rosemarie Arnold, (a firm devoted to the representation of injured victims), in a one room office in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey which she shared with her paralegal Mary Mazza. Thirty years later, Arnold has built her law firm into one of the largest and most successful plaintiffs firms in Bergen County.
Between 1989 and the present, Arnold has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and judgments for her grateful clients and succeeded in scores of high profile cases.
Arnold has been called upon to give her legal expertise to the NY Times, Daily News, New York Post and Wall Street Journal. She has also appeared as a legal expert on Good Morning America, the Today Show, The Early Show, Maury Povich, NY1, ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX News, Inside Edition, and Extra TV.
