I can't say for certain about an Acura, because I've never had one, but usually they are inside the transmission. You have to pull off the bottom plate, usually called the transmission oil pan. Be ready for it to dribble out all of your Transmission Fluid. The filter should then be easily accesible from there.
The 2002 Acura TL automatic transmission DOES NOT HAVE a filter! Regular maintenance - completely draining and replacing the automatic transmission fluid at prescribed intervals - is all that needs to be done. Make sure to do this!!! Because - and I repeat - the 2002 Acura TL automatic transmission DOES NOT HAVE a filter.

It is inside the transmission pan on the bottom of the transmission.
