Basically what you're asking has been asked throughout history.
The Saints defend God
Throughout the ages of biblical times, the saints have declared with trumpets the Justice of God.
Why isn't God doing anything about the evil?
You may then ask, why is there evil in this world? Why are there murders and why are there evil people?
God declares that He will judge every deed.
How can God forgive us, if He is Just?
God has declared all people wicked, so how can He forgive anybody?
Well.. isn't that what this entire story is about.
He's most definitely just. See the following:
From the New Testament:
If God is perfect, that means in every way possible. In justice, in mercy, in love, in reward, in punishment, etc...
He is the ultimate example in everything! So how could he be an unjust god, and yet maintain his perfection in all things?
Well, the answer is obvious, in logical term.
We Christians believe that God created everything.
So God is the ultimate reference and authority for everything. He created the world with his standards. He is justice himself.
In this perspective, God not being just is illogical, because it would require an higher authority under which God could be found "wrong".
God could only be felt "injust" by creatures standards, which are automatically inferior to God justice (and thus flawed).
A comparison would be when you (rightfully) punish a child and he says "that's not just". People who dealt with children know what I mean ;)
Addition : a false representation of God could be found injust. The true justice is said to be seeded in every man's soul by God. Against this higher, truer sense of justice coming from God himself, a false representation of God could be rightfully found injust. This should stimulate a real truth seeker to "clean" his representation of God.
Who is this God?
From this attributes, we see that God is very just.
