    McNamara, 28, was jailed for four years and nine months at Paisley Sheriff Court in July, over the blade attack which left victim, Dale Mitchell, scarred for life.

    The Law Society of Scotland also refused to comment on whether Ms Spencer is being investigated, sê: ‘The Law Society of Scotland cannot confirm or deny complaints cases.

    ‘As the professional body for Scottish solicitors, we take our regulatory duties very seriously to ensure that people have confidence in the legal profession.

    ‘In any case where we have reason to believe that one of our members has not met the high professional standards expected of them, we will take action.

    The Scottish Prison Service said it was unable to comment on the matter.
