Almost everyone has a cell phone. And, at some point, almost everyone has received an annoying unsolicited call or text message on their cell phone.
Some of the most common complaints to government officials concern robocalls, unsolicited calls, and spam text messages. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) provides an option to fight back against these annoying calls and texts. The TCPA may prohibit a company from calling you on your cell phone or sending you text messages without your written consent. The penalty for violating the TCPA can be up to $1,500 per call or text.
This presentation will discuss the requirements for a successful TCPA case, recent developments in this area of the law, and what makes certain TCPA cases better than others.

Chris Roberts is a partner of the law firm Butsch Roberts & Associates in St. Louis, Missouri.
The primary focus of Mr. Roberts's practice is representing consumers in class action litigation. He has successfully resolved class action cases against debt collectors, high-interest lenders, debt settlement companies, timeshare companies, auto dealerships, gyms, telemarketers and many other companies.
Mr. Roberts has successfully litigated TCPA, FDCPA and other consumer protection cases for individuals and as class actions. His results have ultimately led to millions of dollars being paid to consumers and millions of dollars of debt being eliminated for consumers.
When Mr. Roberts is not litigating cases, he makes a concerted effort to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and developments in class action litigation and consumer law. Mr. Roberts is a nationally-published author and a nationally-recognized lecturer on class action issues. He has had two books about class action law published (to which he contributed) by the American Bar Association. He also frequently presents to the American Bar Association and Missouri Bar about class action practice and consumer law issues.
While Mr. Roberts loves the practice of law, what he loves most is spending time with his wife and two daughters. His dedication to his clients is only surpassed by his dedication to being a "girl dad."
