Garrett J. TenHave-Chapman is the founding attorney for Solomon Law Firm. He is a litigator with over twenty-five years of experience. Garrett focuses on Social Security Disability, Workers’ Compensation, Personal Bankruptcy and Child Custody, Immigration and Motor Vehicle Law. He also is experienced in appellate law, veterans’ benefits, landlord-tenant, criminal law, insurance defense, entertainment law, environmental due diligence, and general litigation.
Garrett has advocated for both plaintiffs and defendants. Although he now concentrates his practice on helping clients with social security, workers’ compensation, personal bankruptcy, child custody, immigration, and motor vehicle issues, he knows how to weigh both sides of an issue. He prosecutes cases for plaintiffs but also has defended businesses. He is able to help his clients on either side of an issue understand their opponent, and therefore be prepared for what may happen next in a case.
Garrett holds a Bachelor of Arts in Religion from Hope College, a Master of Divinity from Chicago Theological Seminary, and a law degree from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School.
Garrett is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, its Social Security and Worker’s Compensation sections, the Grand Rapids Bar Association, and both the Western and Eastern Michigan Districts of the United States District Court. He also is an accredited attorney with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Garrett is a sustaining member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR) and a member of the Michigan Association for Justice.
Garrett enjoys the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Lions, softball, movies, singing, and running. He is a member of both the First Congregational Church of Rockford and Tachanuwnah International Ministries. He and his family reside in Rockford.
