I love being a lawyer.  Each day I am grateful for the opportunity to use my education, training and experience to help my community through some of the most difficult times that they experience in life.  From January 1, 2020 until December 31, 2023 I have served as the Commonwealth's Attorney for Loudoun County, Virginia.  I was the first woman elected as the chief prosecutor.  During my term, I made sure that we put in programs that helped victims get services and the accused be treated with dignity.  I used my experience, perspective and leadership to ensure that the system was fair.  The Mission of my administration was *Prevention. Protection. Prosecution*.   When I work with my clients, I approach the cases holistically - thoroughly investigating the case, researching the law and zealously defending my client's freedom.  Simultaneously, we focus on the accused and the community as a whole - we work tirelessly to assess the "why"  the crime was committed, assess what we can do to get services and to avoid convictions and/or imprisonment.  My approach is to be direct and no-nonsense.   Thus, I am able to establish an honest and trusting relationship with my clients and that makes us a stronger team. This way, our solutions are not temporary but life enhancing.

Always the hardest working
Buta has an ability to connect with you and make you feel as if your case is her only case. She spends time to make sure that you understand the process, the issues and how the evidence will impact your interests. When I got to court, I knew we were prepared. And, we were. The other side tried to come in and bully us, but Buta was not having it. She was steadfast and made it clear that the law was on our side.

Above and beyond
I knew Buta was the lawyer for me when I first met her. She was a thorough, straight shooter who was always attentive and never allowed me feel rushed. During our consults, she went above and beyond using her experience to help me with matters far outside of my case with her. It became obvious that she is highly regarded in the community and her professionalism is unprecedented. She has this uncanny ability to calm your nerves while also knowing she’s fighting hard for her clients...which made me thankful to be on her good side. For me specifically, I was astounded at what she was able to accomplish in a short amount of time. I would sincerely and deeply encourage anyone to obtain her services, you will not be disappointed!

Professional and compassionate
We hired Buta to represent our 14-year-old daughter in Juvenile Court. Buta’s counsel, calm advice, and clear-headed professionalism were exactly what we needed in a time of crisis. She has a reassuring demeanor and connected with my daughter right away, explaining the seriousness of the charges and exactly how she would represent the case in court. At all times, we felt Buta represented our best interests and that we received excellent counsel. She treated my daughter with a mix of humor and dignity, which was exactly what she needed to re-build her confidence. Buta kept in touch with us throughout the case, was always responsive, and has very positive relationships with all the other lawyers (and judges) in Loudoun County. Buta is a consummate professional and successfully got my daughter’s charges dropped and expunged. Buta’s compassion and counsel had a very positive impact on our daughter and family, and we are forever grateful for her help.

Excellent!
I couldn't be any happier in choosing Buta to represent my case. She went to battle for me, doing everything in her power to reach an outcome that wouldn't jeopardize my professional career. Beyond her outstanding legal work, she is truly classy. She views you as more than just another client, and works to connect with you and your emotions. She helped me move on from my case, acting as a coach, so that I could continue a healthy social life. She was always available via phone, text, or in person when I needed to reach her. I also respect Buta's genuine nature as she would let you know exactly what she could do for you and what to expect come your court date. Buta is extremely professional and empathetic to her clients and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal counsel. God forbid I need to in the future, I would gladly hire Buta again to represent me. Thank you so much Buta!

Outstanding
Our case was very minor, but it was a great opportunity for us to get a glimpse at how Buta works. To say we were impressed is an understatement. We later had her do some legal papers and again, everything done so professionally and so smoothly. Buta is classy, professional, smart as heck....highly recommend!

Fantastic in every way!
From the very first phone call, I had a great feeling about Ms. Biberaj. There has never been a moment of doubt. While I was stressed, crying and ready to give up, she gave me the motivation to keep going. Even if I don't want to hear something, she says it, but it's said with honesty, compassion and wisdom. If there is one person I trust, it's Ms. Biberaj.

Responsive, Caring and Highly Effective
My DUI case was a complicated and daunting matter due to my specific circumstances and the stakes were high considering the high probability of losing my job. Buta was always there to listen & advise. But she also went above and beyond helping me to think about my life as a whole as I moved through the process. It's only as a reflect back now a year and a half after my initial arrest that I fully appreciate her actions. Buta always had time for my calls and never minded staying late at the office to accommodate my work schedule given the time that I had already missed on the job. In the end she was able to negotiate a wreckless driving charge for me and I completely avoided having to have an "Inter-lock" system installed on my car. This would have been a huge expense and can often damage your vehicle long term. Having spent time with many others (who all have their own unique DUI stories) as I moved through the mandatory "treatment" prescribed by my sentencing - - I have a very high appreciation for what Buta was able to accomplish for me legally and for her very humane empathy during a time that can be extremely demoralizing.

Best lawyer
Not only did Ms.Biberaj help me with my case but she took extra steps to help me with everything else. I've never met a person who is more dedictated to wanting the best for their clients. She means very well and only wants the right outcome for you. She would be the only one I recommend to anyone in need of a lawyer.

Without hesitancy we would encourage the hiring of Attorney Buta Biberaj to represent you or yours in virtually any proceeding
Attorney Buta Biberaj was diligent in advising us at every step of the legal process concerning not only the actual proceedings but the range of options open to us. She went to extraordinary lengths to ensure that our daughter understood every nuance of the matter. She devoted great lengths of time to educate our daughter on the entire legal system. Ms. Biberaj experience and reputation carried the day in her ability to negotiate with opposing counsel in reaching an agreement absolutely in the best interest of her client. Her credibility with the court was immediately evident based on the regard the judges showed in engaging with her. Without hesitancy we would encourage the hiring of Ms. Biberaj to represent you or yours in virtually any proceeding.

No better way to handle police corruption.
Buta was refreshingly able to understand how our so-called 'justice' system has gone awry and remediate with an appropriately balanced response. I could not have chosen a better representative for my son.
