Yes, you should report this with proof of the smses to the Law Society in Pretoria. Both you and your wife should make affidavits, explaining the situation. The Law Society will then investigate the lawyer's behaviour.
If the smses are so insulting, people in your situation should consider to consult a law firm to be advised about amongst other things, breach of privacy, ones good name and integrity.
