$arr_client_me = array('client','me');
   foreach($arr_client_me as &$column_name){    
      if(empty($row->$column_name.'_start')){

want:
      if(empty($row->client_start)){
      if(empty($row->me_start)){


this works:
  if(empty($row[$column_name.'_start'])){

there may be some mixup for PHP in finding what the "String" is you want to use after the  ->
you might try -
foreach($arr_client_me as $column_name){
    $column_name .= '_start';
      if(empty($row->$column_name)){


OR -
foreach($arr_client_me as $column_name){    
      if(empty($row->{$column_name.'_start'})){
