Alice L. Kramer
Alice Kramer was the first woman to start and maintain a law practice in Jefferson County, Missouri. After graduation from the Washington University School of Law in 1974, she was hired by Brunson Hollingsworth and worked in general trial practice until 1990. In 1990 she opened her own office, handling both criminal and civil litigation. She eventually concentrated in the area of family law. Kramer and Hand was formed in 2000 after Alice Kramer's partnership with Julianne Platz Hand.
Alice Kramer was the primary author of the brief for the successful appeal of the case of State v. Holzwarth (520SWd17, Mobanc 1975), which resulted in the reversal of a first degree murder conviction. She also represented the successful respondent on appeal in the case of Murphy v. Carron (536SW2d30 Mobanc 1976), one of the most frequently cited cases in Missouri.
She is a native of Minnesota and a 1971 graduate of Carleton College, Northfield, Minnesota. She married and moved to St. Louis in 1971, graduating from the Washington University in St. Louis School of Law in 1974. During law school she was a member of the editorial staff of the Washington University Law Quarterly, authoring two articles: "Exhibition of a Child to a Jury to Determine Paternity" WULQ 1973 p:245 and "Application of Dram Shop Acts to Non-Commercial Suppliers of Liquor" WULQ 1973 p:708.
Alice Kramer and her husband, Circuit Judge Gary P. Kramer, live in rural Jefferson County. They have three adult children, a dog and two cats.
