Answer:

Wife/Wives
The plural possessive is wives'
The singular possessive is wife's

Attorney/Attorneys
The plural possessive is attorneys'
The singular possessive is attorney's

Explanation:

Wife has an irregular plural form "wives".
For plurals (usually ending with "s") we add the apostrophe at the end of the word to mark the possessive.
For singular forms, we add the apostrophe and then the possessive marker "s".
