Steve Roach – Legal Volunteer
Steve Roach is a principal attorney at the Detroit-based law firm of Miller Canfield, where he practices finance law and litigation. He has a passion for cycling, fishing, and education and loves to donate his time to organizations that add value to the community and environment—Brainstormers! Inspiration Factory, the Howell Nature Center, Tour de Troit, Inc., the League of Michigan Bicyclists—and now, Legacy!
He began volunteering with Legacy earlier this year, and his legal skills combined with his love of the outdoors and land preservation has been a perfect match. Steve’s extensive legal knowledge and amazing communication style has been instrumental as we navigate new legal matters within our conservation easement properties.
We are honored that he has found time to work with us! Thank you, Steve!

His passion for cycling led him to commute by bicycle to his offices in Detroit and Ann Arbor, and to assist with the efforts to obtain bike lanes in Detroit. He admires the progress made in Detroit, which started with a single bike lane by the Ren Cen of less than a mile in 2002 to over 250 miles 20 years later. The Detroit bike lanes have been a catalyst in Detroit’s urban renewal. Steve enjoys hiking and exploring the many areas protected by land conservancies in Benzie and Leelanau counties.
