passive possessive

My Strunk & White is all the way across the room and my foot’s asleep, so quickly please, people:
What’s the plural possessive of “attorney general”?

Yes, I know the plural is “attorneys general”, please listen, I need the plural possessive.

Oh, and it’s a store that they’re possessing:

“Attorneys’ general store” ..?
No, that can’t be right.

THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM NOW.
