    My Uncle died on 12/2/2013 and his only living child died 13 days subsequent to his death. I applied to the Probate Court to be named Personal Representative of the Estate of my deceased uncle. It took the Probate Court six-plus months to rule on my PR request. There was an outstanding REVERSE MORTGAGE on my uncle’s property The mortgage company was attempting to foreclose on the property. Attorney Ash-Shakoor quickly intervened in the process. We had an approved buyer for the property 14 days after I was appointed PR and closed on property 30 days later. Attorney Ash-Shakoor is very detailed and has followed the Will to the letter of the law. As a result of the professional manner in which she handled this matter, I hired her to handle another legal matter for me.
