She is recommended in the Legal 500, 'Associate Natalie Cosgrove is phenomenal. A force of nature. I have encountered few people who can litigate a case as well as she can. Her clients absolutely love her. She has a real dedication to making life better for people with disabilities. I have never met anyone who worked so hard to understand the types of problems faced by people with disabilities. Most lawyer see their role as being to value a claim and organise the evidence. Natalie sets out to gain a better understanding of her client's life and apply that to the legal problems that they face. If everybody did this the legal profession would be better for it.'
