    I endorse Rebecca Berdugo. Not only does Ms. Berdugo have an excellent knowledge of estate planning, she also listens to her clients' needs and provides them with sound and honest advice. I have referred clients to Ms. Berdugo before and would continue to do so based on the unsolicited responses I have received from those referrals.
