Yes, the rotors need to be turned, or replaced depending on if they are warped. The brakes may need to be changed, they may have grooves worn into them from the judder you feel.

Bleed them again, and don't leave the bleeder open, every time the person lets up on the pedal. close on the way down and open and close next time etc. Your letting air back into the system. Don't let the master run dry.

Chronic brake judder slowing down from 40 mph and above.felt thro peddle and whole car shakes when braking from sixty mph and above. could it be the brakes may need bleeding

sounds like your brake rotors may need checked for warps or deep cuts. The brakes could be crystallized, this usually happens when you go through water and it cools them down so fast that they hardened up.
