In light of new restrictions Californians are under due to the Coronavirus, the law firm of David Azizi is moving ahead with ways to keep new and established clients safe. To do this, the firm has set up a way to meet without clients leaving the safety of their home using Skype video conferencing technology.
For many years, people have welcomed and enjoyed advances that allow individuals to hold face-to-face meetings, talk to friends or catch up with family members online. Such meetings have enabled people to communicate long distances or within the same locale easily with their doctors or consult with medical specialists across the country. Now this same technology can be applied for lawsuits and other legal matters that are deemed essential during a pandemic.
Using Skype Video and Teleconferencing Technology
Skype, a telecommunications company, connects people using video chats. It is popular for both personal and business use. It was initially released 16 years ago and has grown in popularity as computer and smartphone usage grew. In 2011, Microsoft Corporation acquired Skype and has since integrated it with its products. Individuals can interact on Skype for free using a smartphone, ordinary telephones or messaging. For business, legal or medical visits, video chat has become popular.
How to Use Skype
Let’s go through the simple steps you need to take to use Skype. You can load it to your desktop or laptop computer.
Skype for your computer: The first thing you need to do is download Skype for your computer or laptop. Check to see if your computer is equipped with a webcam. This enables you to speak with David Azizi face-to-face. If so, click on this link to download Skype.
- On the left side of the page, you will see a blue button. Push it and download Skype.
- Next, you will be asked to sign in. If you already have an account, do that.
- If you don’t have an account, create one.
- All Skype calls to another Skype user are free. If you wish to call mobile phones or landlines, there is a monthly charge. You can always go back later and add the ability to reach people who do not use Skype. You don’t need to worry about this when you talk to David Azizi because he is a Skype user.

Uploading Documents to David
Before the meeting, you may upload documents for David to review ahead of time. They can be sent via email by uploading the document to Google and attaching it to the email. If you have a printer or a dedicated scanner, you will be able to scan the document and load it into a Google document. You can also take a picture of the document using your cell phone and send it via email.
Another way to do it is to download a free scanner app to your phone and email it. Alternatively, if you have a fax machine at home, you can fax it to David’s office. Just ask the office when you schedule the meeting if you have any questions about this.
Mobile Phones and Tablets
Not everyone has a webcam on their desktop computer or a laptop outfitted with one. However, most people have a mobile phone with a built-in ability to make face-to-face calls. Skype can be used on a mobile phone. Skype offers an easy download here.
