Attorney

Cecelia Neihouser Harper is an energetic problem-solver whose work at BB&C combines her love of the law and love of people. Growing up in a farming family, Cecelia has a firsthand understanding of the challenges that face farming communities. “One of my goals is to mesh the intricacies of the law with my insight into crop and animal production to provide practical advice for agribusinesses,” she says.

Cecelia’s goal of helping people extends to her practice in family law, creditor’s rights, and general litigation. “I understand how difficult it is to have family relationships and personal business scattered out for the world to see,” she says. “As an attorney, it’s not just my passion to solve the legal side of the problem, but to share my experience and inspire my clients to see the hope on the other side.” 

An attorney at BB&C since 2016, Cecelia has been responsible for fast-paced, multi-faceted litigation across many practice areas. “Across all my cases, I help my clients keep perspective. Even though a legal process can seem endless, we will achieve a resolution to their problem that lets them move on with life.”
