You will rarely find a manager with both technical and management skills. Justice has both. I always felt comfortable discussing requirements even from technical prospective. Justice is not like typical Manager, He is friendly and helping. I really admired his commitment and honesty with the organization. He has guts to reduce development time by adopting different programmatic approaches. I really liked his Idea of 'Programmatic transformation from Angular to AEM'. That was an amazing concept! I have no doubt that it reduced estimation from months to weeks, if not days. Not only did it gave piece of mind to the dev team, it also saved huge on org budget. Having a manager like Justice is a blessing. I believe, where ever he will go, wheather dev and org, both will be happy to have him.

Abdul Kareem
Senior Java Developer

Justice’s enthusiasm and positive attitude is contagious. All of his teammates fed off of his energy, and not one of them had a single negative thing to say about his management style or professional acumen. Additionally, Justice’s technical background as a developer sets him apart as a manager; his ability to decompose problems and articulate solutions with his peers made the difference in the success of the work his team accomplished. He constantly evangelized new technologies and encouraged many of his peers to invest in their own professional enrichment. The breadth of his skill sets is astounding, but his ability to inspire and encourage others is even more remarkable to me. I wouldn’t think twice if offered the opportunity to work with or collaborate with Justice in the future. Justice *is* that good.

J.T. Gralka
Agile Coach & Developer

I really enjoyed working with Justice as he was one of few managers I've had who looked after the well being of his team. He was one of the most energetic leaders within the department that genuinely prioritized the quality of our team's output and finished product. Justice came in every day with a positive attitude that was contagious to the rest of our group and vital to keeping our team moral at its highest when things got rough. I consistently looked forward to our daily scrum and felt comfortable coming to him with any problems because he was always ready to make time to sit with me and find a solution. I admire him most for always looking at the bright side of any situation and finding a way to grow from it. He is personable, passionate, and has motivated me to stretch myself in new directions as a developer.

They say that you meet a few people in your life that make an memorable impact on your life. Justice is one of those people. His passion for life, knowledge of technology, and his contagious enthusiasm will rub off on anyone he works or is friends with. There is no better person and/or technologist in North East Ohio, and probably the rest of the country for that matter. This may sound like a little much; it's not. Once you've met Justice you'll understand. He's truly a one-of-a kind person both personally and professionally.

Ryan Lazuka
Software Developer

Justice GETS IT. He is a hard worker and enjoys solving problems and finding ways to work better and more efficiently. Justice is also one of the most passionate people I have met in the industry and is a total technologist, enamored with the future of development and learning code. I know he's going to be an asset as other people become burned out and "set in their ways," Justice will continue to seek new answers and hone his skills and knowledge and make a great addition to any team who is looking to infuse not just another hand behind the wheel, but a life force into their collective.

David Puerto
UI Specialist

Justice's passion for all things tech is truly inspiring. He is dedicated to exploring any and every option when it comes to creative problem solving and and he expects the same of his team. His love of software development and his awareness of the current tech landscape is apparent in every conversation. He would be a valuable asset to any team that shares his level of dedication to accomplishing a positive outcome for their project.

Nelson Foltz
UX Designer

You won't find many developers around like Justice, and he'd make a great addition to any development team. Justice has a constant conquest to learn new tech, and the ability to carve out a strong development path for a new project. He also knows how to continue to move a project forward and get things done, while ensuring a project is still shipped with all intended deliverables. I strongly recommend Justice to any leading tech firm looking for an emerging developer to fit a demanding development position.

Mark Shust
Full Stack Developer

Hands down, Justice is probably the most EPIC bro nerd I know. He is incredibly passionate about the latest and greatest technology and always seems to be learning something new on the side. He has a love for programming and will be an absolute asset to any team. I highly recommend Justice as a developer.

John Urbank

Justice is one of the most knowledgeable people in his industry. His strategic and creative approach allows him to simply craft the perfect sequence to problem solve any situation that arises. Upon leading a development team, it allows his team members to feel their importance, focus on their core strengths, and continue to grow in their weaknesses. Justice possesses such a love for life in general that when you spend long periods of time with him, that transfers to you. You will never regret a moment you get to work with him. Very down to earth and always loving to bring out the best in people, Justice is one of a kind.

Randy Chmielewski

Justice is the kind of programmer who is obviously passionate and devoted to his career. It is this passion that allows him to keep learning new things about programming languages and techniques in order to always stay up to date in his field. Justice also carries himself with honesty and integrity. He would be an asset to any company.

Bryan Cable
Senior Software Design Engineer

Justice has been simply the best CIO, the best project manager I ever met. He was a source of motivation, whatever he was giving me positive or negative feedbacks. I loved chosen technologies, professional and personal suggestions and basically all the way he was managing our remote team. From a professional point of view I would highly recommend him, without any hesitation. I... really hope we can work again together in the future.

Daniele Gazzelloni

His knowledge includes analysis and design of complex web applications using a variety of open source technologies.

Overall, Justice is a talented individual who I would recommend for any technology position.
