Anitra Ash-Shakoor

Capital Justice Attorneys LLP

Capital Justice Attorneys, LLP is the reliable, trusted, and inspiring law firm it is today thanks to the consistent efforts and dedication of our founder, Anitra Ash-Shakoor. Her years of experience has refined her skills and knowledge regarding mortgages, lending regulations, and consumer bankruptcy law. Anitra uses these skills and knowledge to help people with financial problems and emergencies get the relief they need. She has represented hundreds of individuals and married couples in chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. She is a well respected lawyer in the field, friendly and knowledgeable, and easy to get in contact with. Helping people file bankruptcy and eliminate their debts - and save their homes, their cars, and their livelihoods - is her passion!

Anitra received her law degree (Juris Doctor), from Temple University Beasley School of Law in 2001, and her undergraduate degree from Morgan State University in 1998. She began her legal career as a law clerk at the Regional Bankruptcy Center for Southeastern Pennsylvania and had the distinct honor of working for, and learning from, former Chief Judge of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Judge David A. Scholl. In 2012, she formed her own law firm, Capital Justice, in Washington, D.C. and continued her commitment to serving those in financial distress. Anitra serves as chair of the National Bar Association Bankruptcy Law Section’s Outreach Community. She is a member of the District of Columbia Bar, the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), and is admitted to practice law in the United States District and Bankruptcy Courts for the District of Columbia, District of Maryland, and the Northern District of Illinois.

Anitra is a Northern California native and resides with her family in Prince Georges County, MD.
