Good evening and thank you for your question. I'm a solicitor specialising in family law and dispute resolution so I'd be happy to offer some guidance.The disciplinary body for solicitors is the Solicitors' Regulation Authority. They may choose to conduct their own investigation if they believe that his actions brought the profession into disrepute. If there were actual criminal proceedings against him, he should have declared them especially if they resulted in a conviction.

There were no convictions brought against him only if he came near my house again I could call the police and have him arrested. I have a recorded conversation where he admits to calling my daughter names and swearing at her and emails with abusive messages
