A year after obtaining his law degree, he was employed as an associate at an international law firm called Reed Smith, LLP. He represented clients in industries across consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices.
Not long after, in 2014, his team was acknowledged by the Daily Journal to have Top Defense Results. In both state and federal courts, Mike acquired considerable law and motion practice.
After more than seven years, he left Reed Smith, LLP, to become a personal injury attorney. He branched out on his own in 2020 and started Mandell Trial Lawyers in Calabasas, California. However, the company only lasted four months.
