The people squawking in that other thread don't have any legal expertise. When they say Amanda is "just" a paralegal it signals they don't have a very clear idea of what paralegals do. Paralegals would normally be very close to the details of a case, they would have intimate details about the documents primarily because they do the bulk of the legal research and drafting of those documents, and excellent paralegals get the cases all researched out, prettied up, and ready to go for the attorneys to argue them in a courtroom.

Also, while I don't know this specific paralegal's role in this case, a paralegal at a firm of this caliber would have legal expertise at least on part with, if not better than, a significant number of attorneys. She is likely to know what she's talking about and oftentimes I'd rather hear what a paralegal has to say rather than an attorney.

Just like a nurse practitioner vs a degreed Dr.
