About Hoyt & Blewett PLLC

Serving Montana Since 1985

John C. Hoyt, now deceased, and Alexander (Zander) Blewett, III, started the Hoyt & Blewett PLLC Montana law firm in 1985. Legendary trial lawyer, John C. Hoyt, is widely considered to be the founder of modern tort law in Montana and was regarded as one of the preeminent trial lawyers in the nation. Mr. Hoyt tried countless jury trials on behalf of injured Montanans. Due to his tireless preparation, creative legal thinking and prudent judgment he obtained numerous record-setting million dollar jury verdicts against some of the largest corporations in world. Mr. Hoyt’s advocacy not only enabled his injured clients to obtain justice, it also created new legal precedents which helped even the playing field for consumers and workers throughout Montana. A number of Mr. Hoyt’s former partners went on to serve on the Montana Supreme Court, which prompted one former United States Senator to remark “while it was not required to have practiced with John Hoyt to sit on the Montana Supreme Court, it did not hurt.” The attorneys at Hoyt and Blewett continue to utilize the advocacy techniques and strategies pioneered by Mr. Hoyt during his celebrated career.
