Since day one Anitra was very quick to respond to any inquiries, her demeanor was always poised and professional. She made sure to listen to the client (me), and tried to provide brief and swift responses.
Unfortunately, because Anitra was not licensed to practice in MD she deferred my case to one of her Associates. This became a problem because her associate was hard to reach, did not return emails or phone calls, and had an extremely thick foreign accent difficult to understand most of the time. Additionally, although I'm not versed in any type of legal matters, the associate did not convey to me a sense that he was deeply knowledgeable about his craft.
But throughout all this inconvenience Anitra always followed up to make sure her associate had contacted me, and to see if I had any questions which she could pass on to the associate once she god in touch with him. She was always patient, and reassured me that her clients' satisfaction was her first priority, and she seemed truly genuine about it.
After Anitra's intervention her associate started to become more communicative and we finalized the process without any major issues.
Although I did not work with Anitra per se, and cannot directly comment on her legal skills, from a merely customer service perspective I can say she was very pleasant to work with and showed to be a consistent and responsible professional. But I would recommend her only is she is handling the case personally, not if she has to defer to her associates.
Ms. Ash-Shakoor made my process easy to follow and understand. She always answered my questions and let me know all of my options. I highly recommend her services.
There is no doubt that I would not only hire this attorney again, I would recommend her to anyone that needs her assistance. She is fast, responsive, knowledgeable, and flexible. She kept me abreast of everything that was going on with my case without my asking.
I highly recommend Ms. Ash-Shakoor.
I am acquainted with Ms. Ash-Shakoor through our mutual professional network. I am impressed with her professionalism, competency, and expertise. If ever I am in need of an attorney, I would not hesitate to retain her services.
From 2012 to 2013 Attorney Shakoor handled my bankruptcy case. She was representing the D.C. Bar as a pro-bono attorney. From the time we first met until our last meeting I was totally satisfied with the way she did things in a timely manner and many times she went out of her way to meet me and make information available to me. It did not take long for me to have complete trust in Attorney Anitra Ash Shakoor because she was always professional and knowledgeable about the laws and practices that were related to bankruptcy. I would always recommend her first when selecting an attorney.
It has been more than pleasurable working with Ms. Ash-Shakoor. We believe,as fate would have it, she was predestined to cross our path, a legal god-sent when a level of frustration and a sense of despair had overwhelmed us. We are eternally grateful for our rescue from the burdensome financial troubles we long experienced.
If you are considering hiring an attorney for bankruptcy services, then I would highly recommend Anitra Ash-Shakoor, Esq. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about state-specific and national bankruptcy law, she also has an innate ability to calm the fears of her clients by keeping them fully informed about the legal process but also by going above and beyond the call of duty to provide a first-class standard of care. She is an extremely intelligent professional who always operates with a sense of urgency for her clients.
