Old webpage still showing up on SERP months after info was scrubbed from page/site

Hey everyone,

I have a fairly unique question and am hoping someone here has some info on this. I work for an attorney, and we used to be part of a larger law firm. We split off from them 1.5 years ago, and around 1 year ago scrubbed ALL links and mention of our attorney from their website.

Now when I search for my attorney's name, the SERP shows 1.) our homepage, 2.) the FB page then the attorneys page for the old law firm.

I checked the links to that page to make sure none of them had our attorneys name connected with anchor text or anything else, and I saw 1 or 2 links that mentioned him, not as anchor text, but I can't imagine google is rocketing this page to the top of the SERP based on 1 or 2 non branded backlinks, but perhaps.

The problem is I have no idea/way to fix this. The page has nothing in the code linking to or mentioning my attorney, and it was just indexed 2 weeks ago, MONTHS after he was scrubbed completely from the site.

Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much,
