He currently serves as one of five members appointed to the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, an administrative court system for workers and employers, ruling on work-related benefits. He previously served in the California State Assembly and the Monterey Park City Council, and was mayor of Monterey Park from 2004 to 2005.

Mike founded a downtown immigration law firm and has also been on the teaching faculty at California State University, Los Angeles, UCLA, Los Angeles Trade Tech College and University of the West.
Mike was the main author of California’s Homeowner Bill of Rights which was cited by the Huffington Post as one of the top six most significant progressive victories of 2012 in the U.S. in dealing with home foreclosures; he authored California’s Human Right to Water which was recognized by the United Nations as an “inspiring example” for world governments because it aided disadvantaged communities; he passed the first California law to disaggregate or separate out ethnic demographic data in order to identify and serve the specific needs of the many Asian and Pacific Islander communities and pioneered the first comprehensive survey of America’s largest community college system that revealed one in five students is homeless and almost two thirds routinely experience hunger and paved the way for beginning solutions.
