Low arcan Five of Swords and high arcan Justice combination - justice prevails, unless both followed by further negative card in which case it may show injustice, or perverting the course of justice if order switched (Justice > Five of Swords)
Five of Swords tarot card

Card 1 - Five of Swords

The Five of Swords card depicts a young man who has a very convenient look of contempt on his face. He is looking at the enemies that he has managed to conquer. There are five swords that he possesses – which he has taken from the other combatants who are in the card. The two other figures are walking away from him in a slow manner with a sense of loss and sadness. Above them, the sky is tumultuous and cloudy, which indicates that not everything is well, despite the fact that the battle is already over.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Differing aspects of secrecy can be found with The Devil (not usually very healthy by most regards) or The Moon (deceptions). The High Priestess has a secrecy aspect but normally beneficial. 

Five of Swords combinations
Surrounding cards should help provide further information for the root of the problem, in some cases a King or Queen preceding may provide clear identification of a person involved that can’t be trusted. Ideally, you want to see a positive card following to show it comes to nought or is overcome.

Justice tarot card

Card 2 - Justice

The Justice tarot card is a symbol of truth, fairness, and law. As she sits in her chair, the scales in her left hand represent how intuition should balance logic. She symbolizes impartiality with the double-edged sword in her right hand. The clarity in thought which is required to dispense justice are symbolized by the square on the crown she wears. Behind her, there is a purple cloak and standing grey pillars. Beneath her red cloak, which is held together by a clasp, she shows the tip of a white shoe. This is a spiritual reminder that what she delivers are the outcomes of their actions.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
The Ace of Pentacles (contracts with material connection) The Emperor (rational and practical) The Hermit (deep thought and contemplation) Temperance (balanced emotions) King or Queen of Swords (lawyers, police, men/women with legal connections) Two of Pentacles (maintaining balance)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Five of Wands (imbalance) Two of Swords (indecision, two minds) Five of Swords (dishonest)  

Justice combinations
Due to the legal implications of Justice there are lots of possible combinations, however, always check the defined meanings you normally use and follow progressions carefully to avoid misinterpretation or jumping to conclusions. I tend to look for a number of reinforcing cards when less favourable indications are present; these are more evident when using the Life Spread and Anchor. In legal matters you would hope to find a favourable card immediately following Justice to show a good outcome and happy resolution (The World, The Sun, Three of Cups, Six of Wands, etc).
