It will be caught by the search as the proper grammer is to have an opening quote for each paragraph in the speech and a closing one only on the last paragraph. Use it to search and then hand fix the areas.
I don't auto replace, I make the decision each time. I agree about the paragraphs that span many paragraphs. I flip between Find, Replace/Find and manual edits. It's good at finding orphan words that are a single paragraph.
