Biography

Senator Steve Roberts, a fourth-generation St. Louisan, began his law career in private practice in California. However, he felt a call to serve his community and returned to St. Louis to take a job as a prosecutor for the city of St. Louis. In this role, he honed his skills in the courtroom, serving on the Armed Offender Unit and participating in prosecuting over a hundred cases.

This participation in the criminal justice system inspired him to start a career in public service and to affect change on a statewide level. Roberts was elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in 2016 and the Missouri State Senate in 2020. Currently, he serves as the chair of the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus. As a state legislator, Roberts has been an unflinching advocate for Missouri’s most vulnerable citizens. He has advocated for criminal justice reform, women’s rights, and voter empowerment.

Roberts continues this passion for advocacy, empowerment, and fairness with Roberts Law, LLC. He founded the firm to enable him to serve on a more personal level. Driven by his passion for justice and equity, Roberts approaches personal injury law with a service-oriented mindset—focusing on telling your story, making sure that you are treated fairly, and ensuring that not only will you receive the maximum award you deserve, but that you will be treated with dignity throughout the entire process.
