Default green card by marriage or work?

I work in the USA on an L1 visa and I have just married a lovely American man. My lawyer is advising me to apply for permanent residency via my work (my company will sponsor me) AND also apply for permanent residency via marriage.

Does anyone have any idea how long these two proceedures will take in San Francisco and also any tips to expediate the process?

I am a novice and I have heard horror stories...any tips welcome.

Why both? Does your lawyer get double fee? I would file via marriage. The average is
152-213 from filing to interview!

Tip: have a LOT of patience!
