Harvey Leonard Sproul, Esq. has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in General Law.
Mr. Sproul is very proud of serving his community of Loudon County, Tennessee over 60 years of dedicated civic leadership. He was elected as a county judge and to the office of county mayor in 1966, which facilitated his later professional success. In a very conservative county with 25,000 people then and 50,000 people now, Mr. Sproul managed to become elected as the first Democrat in 40 years to win a county office. He remarks that his Kentucky grandparents would have run him out of town on a railroad tie if he turned Republican. Mr. Sproul served the county in modernizing planning, law enforcement, and retirement before stepping back to practice as a county attorney for 24 years. He is the recipient of an Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, and has appeared in the pages of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Law, and Who’s Who in the World.
Born in Williamsburg, Kentucky to Harvey Lafayette and Ruth Sproul, Mr. Sproul attended the University of Tennessee, and after earning a JD in 1957 he joined the U.S. Army Reserve with the 194th Judge Advocate General. He was later appointed to staff judge advocate of the 125th Army Reserve Command in 1986, retiring three years later with the rank of colonel. While serving the Reserve, Mr. Sproul partnered with Dannel & Fowler, which became Dannel & Sproul in 1962. He has partnered with a number of firms bearing his name through the years, launching Sproul & Hinton in 1988, which transitioned into his current law firm in 2012. Mr. Sproul was recognized early on as a Tennessee Outstanding Young Man by Jaycees in 1967, and later earned membership with Omicron Delta Kappa, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Phi, and Delta Sigma Phi along with numerous legal societies.
As a prominent civic figure, Mr. Sproul helped to build the Lenoir City and Loudon County Committees of 100, the Loudon County Economic Development Agency, the Loudon County Chamber of Commerce, the Loudon County Visitors Bureau, the Tellico Area Services System, and the Loudon County Planning Commission, all of which are in operation today. He was named 2015 Outstanding Person of the Year of Loudon County, 1989 Man of the Year by the Loudon County Chamber of Commerce, and is inducted in the Loudon County Hall of Fame.
