shudder while braking

i have a 1996 ford escort lx swg w/ a/t, 1.9L engine, 220,000 miles
i have had it from day 1 and have done all the regularly scheduled
maintenance on it, w/o fail.
it has run quite well, but now a problem has developed, as follows:
when braking, right at the very moment when it comes to a complete
halt, and only at the very end,
there is a shudder that lasts for about one second. the shudder is NOT
in either of the front wheels;
it feels like it's coming from the engine/transmission. also, the
problem is intermittent - it does not happen each and every time i
brake.
any ideas as to what's going one or what might be developing?
tia

I think your transmission is not downshifting or is late or the
converter lock-up is not unlocking. Have you been maintaining the
transmission too?

Re: shudder while braking

yes, the transmission leaks, but i've been diligent in keeping it
topped off - - if anything, there's too much fluid in it
