Attorney Michael Lewis and his team of litigators have achieved a series of substantial victories for NH children and those who seek to protect the rights of children in NH.  From the child-victims of abuse at the Sununu Center (otherwise known as YDC), to adopted parents, grandparents, guardians, whistleblowers and others seeking to protect children, RYP has stood up for children where the law has otherwise failed them.  Along the way, Lewis, a former homicide prosecutor at the New Hampshire Department of Justice, has also been a leading advocate for change with respect to New Hampshire’s system of child protection.  His impact has been reported in the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, the Union Leader, and New Hampshire Public Radio, among other outlets:
