This answer is from Kelly M. Harris, Director of Marketing at the Supreme Court Historical Society:

Turtles are found in numerous locations in the architecture of the Supreme Court building. They are found supporting the lampposts at the entrances and exits of the ground level and also in one of the corners of the 2nd Street pediment (opposite corner has a hare). The turtle symbolizes longevity, and the slow - yet deliberate pace of justice which is why architect Cass Gilbert chose to use them as a feature in this magnificent structure.

Of the many other symbols, used a few of are: the ram - symbolizing strength, the owl - symbolizing wisdom, and the lion - symbolizing guardianship.
