Judicial Review is not as complicated as it sounds. In essence, it is a court proceeding in which a judge reviews the lawfulness of an action or decision taken by a public body.
Judicial Review therefore marks a challenge to the manner in which a decision was made, as opposed to the reliability of the conclusion itself.
Stephen Field: An Expert in Judicial Review
London-based barrister, Stephen Field, represents individuals who feel short-changed by the decisions of public bodies. These include local authorities, immigration services and the regulatory agencies which determine the rights of prisoners.
Stephen’s drive to instil integrity in the decision making process has seen him chalk-up a number of high-profile Judicial Review successes.
Atop his résumé sits a challenge to the proposed arrest of a volunteer attending a police station. Stephen aided his client in their pursuit of justice by arguing that the arrest had not been “necessary”.
Stephen’s legal prowess also forced the reversal of a prison governor’s decision to refuse an inmate access to a doctor. The original piece of Charles Bronson artwork hanging from the wall of Stephen’s office marks an expression of this prisoner’s gratitude.

There are legal measures in place to bring to book those public bodies which breach their codes of decision making.
Stephen can make the legal system work for you.
