I am seeking someone to create a database for me to use in my legal practice. I am a solo attorney in the Chicago area that has a small but growing real estate practice. I need a database that will allow me to input all the information necessary for my files for buyers and sellers of real estate. I would prefer one database to do it all but if I need to have one for buyers and another for sellers that would be acceptable.
I have a basic system using Access now that works but it is too basic to make me want to use it so needless to say, I don’t. Using Access for this database would be preferable as I already have the software and I have a basic understanding of it. I am willing to look at other software options though.
Having the database web friendly would be a plus. Being able to input the data from the internet but being able to use it locally would be ideal.
The database also has to work with MS Word so that I can pull information from the database and use it in the documents I create for the file. I prepare many documents for files that the basic information is the same but having to repeatedly type it in is a waste of time. I do have repeat clients and realtors that I use so if there was an option that could pull information that has already been submitted and reused would be nice. The database should also have an option to close the file out wherein the data is available for viewing but does not automatically pop up every time I access the database. I will need to have reports that can be generated periodically with certain information from the fields in the database.
Some fields that would be populated by the data base is the buyers name, address, phone number, property address, sales price, realtor info, lender info, sellers attorney, property information, etc. I would imagine that there would be approximately 100 fields for a seller file and about the same for a buyer file. I have uploaded the form screen for sellers of the database that I created using access. It is very basic but this gives a fairly accurate representation of the fields that would be necessary in the database. The problem with this database that I created is that I have no way of closing out a file when it is completed and it is just too much information to input on one screen. I would like to have one screen input the clients name and personal information. Then another to input the contract information, another to input the sellers attorney info (If I represent the buyer and visa versa if I represent the seller) etc.
I am very open to suggestions. As you can see from this description I need help. I know exactly what I am looking for but just have no way of knowing how to do it.
