My husband's name is Justice, and I absolutely love it! Other people love it too; he gets compliments constantly. It is strong and memorable. He is often called Justin by mistake, but I think that Justice sounding so similar to Justin is a plus: it makes this virtue name sound more familiar and less "weird" than some of the others do. I would love to name a son after him, but sadly, Justice Jr. loses some of its punch!
