John received his undergraduate education at UCLA, earning a bachelors degree in political science, with a focus in international relations. His postgraduate education was conducted at Pepperdine University, School of Law and at the University of La Verne, School of Law.

Alexis Langer started working as an attorney with the Southern California Law Firm of Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin, Mendoza, and Harrison in 2014. Her practice areas thus far include personal injury, landlord/tenant disputes, employment civil rights and children’s rights litigation. While at the firm she has spearheaded a children’s rights department focusing on disability and special education law, discrimination and bullying, injuries arising from school or teacher misconduct and deprivation of civil rights with respect to children.
Ms. Langer obtained her Juris Doctor degree from Whittier Law School in 2013 and was active in the Special Education Law Clinic during her time in law school. Prior to entering law school, she obtained her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont with a degree in Spanish and Psychology. She is admitted to the State Bar of California and the U.S. District Courts for Southern and Central Districts of California. Ms. Langer is also a member of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles and the American Association for Justice, among others.
Alexis is passionate about advocating for children as a way to help them overcome trauma and injury and receive a sense a justice to move on in their lives. Children who are victims of sexual abuse, discrimination and harassment, bullying and other school misconduct need an advocate and they need support through this difficult time. Having the help of an attorney can help a child come out stronger and more resilient. It is far too easy for children subjected to wrongdoing to fall through the cracks and point the blame at themselves for something that is out of their control or for simply being who they are.
