Hi.  Yesterday I told our SEO Company that I was looking at discontinuing service with them.   He didn't like this and said I needed to pay them 2 extra months in order to leave, eventhough this is not stated in our contract.  I said I didn't like this and he said if I didn't he will get his lawyers involved.  The phone call left the issue unresolved but 1 hour after the phone call he changed his status on Google my busisness to owner and adminstrator and changed mine to manager.   Today he marked my business a being 'permanenty closed'.  When customers called us saying this I changed this back myself.    Now i notice that google now does not rank my website at all even when I search for my website's name.  Is there a way that the SEO company could cause my sight not to index at all in one day?  My website is www.WaverleyEyeCare.com.   He also did the same to www.EyesOnBridgwater.com.

Thanks for the help.

You will need to verify yourself as an owner.
Then, figure out what their verification method was and remove it which would remove their ownership.
 
Google has a dedicated help center specifically for business listings that can be found here.
They may be able to help as well on that side.

I have verified myself as owner for both sites.  I have changed passwords to all domain managment sites,  wordpress and our social media accounts...the only one he has access to is google my business.

Check users in wordpress - they may have also access thru it. Remove all "administrators" leaving only you as an admin in Wordpress.
