Nick Merz is a North-Austin based personal injury attorney dedicated to helping victims of medical malpractice and sexual assault.
Nick served in the United States Marines from 2005-2009. He became a lawyer because he was attracted to the idea of standing for a cause through the use of the law. As a long-time member of the Austin community, he takes helping his clients seriously. He finds joy in the work he does through assisting his clients on a day to day basis—even if the clients are not aware of the small tasks that go into building the best case possible.
Clients should know that Nick will give his complete attention and focus on ensuring their matter is handled with the highest care and competency. He will do all he can to ensure that clients receive the damages they are entitled to. Nick’s incredible desire to learn and acquire knowledge is an asset. Once he learns something, he never forgets it.
Nick’s primary focus at The Carlson Law Firm is representing clients who were victims of personal injury, medical malpractice and sexual assaults. He considers one of his most notable cases a $4 million verdict award in Fort Bend County.
Nick is a graduate of Texas Tech University School of Law; and received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Texas State University.
He is a member of the Capital Area Trial Lawyer Association and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association. Nick was a 2014-2017 Senior Fellow in the Academy for Leadership in the Legal Profession.
During his time in the Marines, Nick instructed Marines and Naval personnel martial arts under the Marine Corp Martial Program from 2008-2009.
When he’s not practicing law, Nick is a dedicated Star Wars fan. Additionally, he has been a 20-year Houston Astros fan. One of his favorite moments was going to Game Two of the 2017 American League Championship Series. In 2005, Nick made Eagle Scout in Boy Scouts of America.
