How does one find out you’ll likely have to move from your home to make room for a new NFL stadium downtown? You get a letter from a law firm in New York City offering to represent you in a transaction you didn’t know you were even negotiating.
Here’s a letter sent to residents in Buffalo’s Old First Ward last week.
Is this ironclad proof that, secretly, a stadium site has already been selected? Of course not.
But we’re going to trust that a law firm that practices nothing but eminent domain and condemnation law and operates a blog called “Bulldozers at Your Doorstep” is pretty selective when it comes to advertising its services by way of direct mail.
The vultures are likely circling for a reason.
