From a book I'm reading:
"[I] looked through the lawyer's directory until I found a number, and made the call."
If there really were something called a lawyer's directory, only one name would be in it because the apostrophe tells us so: lawyer's.
So I think we need to put the apostrophe in the right place: lawyers'.
