Attorney David H. Nelson, marking seven years as a member of the Cazenovia Recovery Board of Directors, enjoys talking about the organization’s growth.

“It’s a real tribute to the agency that we’re seen as the rescue agency for troubled programs,” he said. An example is Cazenovia Recovery’s acquisition in early 2016 of the programs of Fellowship House in Niagara County.

Such transactions and future growth call for “careful consideration,” he said. “We don’t want to overextend ourselves.” His vision for the agency is “to remain on the cutting edge of providing services to the community we serve.”

Dave has high praise for the administration and staff. The agency’s biggest strength, he said, is, “our employees, who are dedicated, committed, caring people. We do very inspiring work.”

Dave’s law firm, Dadd, Nelson, Wilkinson & Wujcik, PLLC, is in Attica, NY. His practice area concentrates in workers compensation. He also handles Social Security disability cases, and has extensive civil and criminal jury trial experience in a wide variety of matters.

Dave joined the Cazenovia Recovery Board at the invitation of his friend and former Board member, the late Roy Turner. Dave enjoys serving beside fellow Board members, whom he describes as “interested, very committed and active.”

“It’s a very rewarding experience,” he said. “I thoroughly enjoy it.”

Dave participates in agency activities, including Recovery Day. A runner and fan of marathons, he ran in the 2015 Recovery Day race at McCarthy Park under dark skies and heavy rain. “Recovery Day hasn’t had the best luck with weather the past couple of years,” he noted. He’d like to see the event moved to an indoor site, which he believes also would boost attendance.

Cazenovia Recovery’s mission of hope and help resonates strongly with Dave, who has been in recovery for 27 years. “It’s very important to me, personally,” he said.
