Maddy starts the episode by discussing how automation and AI can improve the efficiency and accuracy of paralegals, freeing them up for higher-skilled tasks. She also addresses the fear that automation will replace paralegal jobs: Not in this lifetime! Later in the episode, Maddy talks about how Smith.ai works with law firms to help them improve responsiveness.
