Different from French and Portuguese where the polite pronoun is simply the 2nd person plural, In Romanian the polite pronoun is "dumneavoastră" with the verb at plural. "Voi" is not a polite pronoun, just the 2nd person plural so it requires plural for the determiner too.
"Dumneavoastră sunteți o avocată" (polite, singular)
"Voi sunteți (niște) avocați" (plural)
"Dumneavoastră" is an abbreviation of "domnia voastră" - loosely "your lordship"
