John “Jack” Hoyt ‘s background and experience is unique and highly beneficial to his clients.
In the first half of his career, he represented insurance companies and others in defending lawsuits. He tried dozens of cases and settled thousands more, becoming intimately familiar with the defense point of view.
Twenty years ago, he “jumped the net” and has been representing injured plaintiffs ever since. His clients benefit, since he knows very well what the defense is going to do, how they think, and how they are going to handle a case.
Educated at the US Naval Academy, Harvard University, Rutgers Law School, and the State University of New York, Jack brings a broad depth of knowledge and experience to the table. To settlement negotiations he brings his training as a master negotiator trained in the Negotiation Program at Harvard Law School.
Friendly and easy to talk to, Jack considers himself the guardian and protector of his client’s interests in the court system. He prides himself on returning phone calls, and keeping clients informed.
He specializes in medical malpractice, brain injury/spinal cord cases, auto/truck/motorcycle litigation and general personal injury work.
He is on the Board of Governors of the New Jersey Association for Justice; the state’s largest and most influential organization of trial lawyers.
He is married, and enjoys sailing, flying, woodworking and golf.
