Woman Whose Grandfather, Father, Uncle, and Cousin Are All Lawyers Starts New Law Firm

Kree D. Filer, a young Black female lawyer from Los Angeles who comes from a family of many lawyers, has now opened a private law practice herself. She says that she looks forward to working with and representing her own clients via her new firm which is called The File Law Office.

Filer has always wanted to follow the footsteps of her grandfather, Maxcy D. Filer, a well-known civil rights activist and former member of the Compton City Council, and her father, Judge Kelvin D. Filer, who had a private practice before becoming a judge at the Compton Courthouse.

That’s why after earning a BA in Women’s Studies at UC Santa Cruz, she decided to attend Loyola Law School where she received her JD Degree in 2016.

Aside from her grandfather and father, she also has an uncle and cousins who are lawyers. She says that her uncle, Anthony S. Filer, Sr., a supervising attorney for Community Legal Aid SoCal taught her the importance of giving back and helping those who could not afford legal services.

Her first legal career experience was working at the law office of her cousin, Lance M. Filer, where she served as an associate attorney for almost 3 years. She then became a staff attorney at a non-profit legal agency called The Los Angeles Dependency Lawyers where she handled complex dependency matters at the Edelman Children’s Courthouse for over a year.

With those work experiences, she’s confident she can make it on her own. “I also know that a private law practice is a business and respect the challenges and opportunities that will be presented in this endeavor,” Filer, who is the first woman in the family to become a lawyer, told Los Angeles Sentinel.

Filer says her firm is a general private practice that focuses primarily on criminal defense, dependency cases, and civil litigation.

“I know that I love the theater of the courtroom and I am not afraid to take on legal challenges. I am committed to providing the best legal representation on behalf of all of my clients. I particularly want to help those who are most in need and, in that way, make a positive contribution to our community.”
