As an activist, he has championed police reform and community empowerment. His office has led the way in reform in Texas, a state notorious for its failure to prosecute police officer, advocating for the first murder indictments of officers in the state in over 40 years. Following the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in the Summer of 2017, Merritt helped to launch the American Black Cross, a disaster relief organization geared to serve the most vulnerable sectors of society.

In 2017 Merritt was recognized as one of the top 10 most influential African Americans in the country ages 18 to 45 by The Root.

He began his legal career with the Cochran Firm Philadelphia before going into private practice.

Texas Clients Botham Jean and Atatiana Jefferson, were both murdered by police officers within miles of each other in their homes in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. These tragic events sparked a national conversation about officer use of force and accountability.
