About Justice IT Consulting LLC

Justice IT Consulting was founded in 2003 by Brooke Justice as a “side gig” or as the young-uns call it these days, a “side hustle”. Back in those days, Brooke served mainly Burleson business owners helping them with all things IT. Brooke may not have known it at the time but there were bigger things destined for Justice IT Consulting. After years of working in enterprise IT and his “side-gig” in tandem, Brooke decided it was time to make Justice IT Consulting the real deal.

Austin Justice, Brooke’s son had spent years working in IT for small and medium businesses. After about a year of throwing the idea back and forth together, Brooke and Austin decided to take the leap together. They figured with Brooke’s extensive enterprise knowledge and Austin’s capabilities working with small and medium businesses (SMBs) that together they could provide an enterprise level competitive technological advantage to the little guys.

Today Justice IT Consulting has turned into a premier cyber security company and turnkey IT provider for manufacturing, aerospace, and defense contractor companies throughout the state of Texas.
