Fret level!!! Do it yourself???

Hey guys,
I have an Ibanez RGTHRG1 and i like a low action about 1,9 mm at the 12th
fret and have a light picking hand. But still have buzz at the 9th and 3rd fret.
I thought about filing dem down a bit myself. Does anyone have any experience? Can this be done or shall i bring this guit to an luthier?

I would apreciate any info. (some links would be great to)

If you don't have a couple of fretboards to practice on first send it to a luthier. I read a post somewhere where the guy was learning to do this and ruined some fret jobs before he could actually get it right.
