It is highly unlikely you will receive your green card in three months.
Having legal representation makes the process efficient and effective.
Perhaps a consultation might come in handy prior to filing.

Three 3 months isn't realistic even with an attorney's assistance .... especially in Florida.
Six to 9 months is quick ... with a temporary work permit about 4-5 months after filing.
Yes, an attorney can help save time, but showing you what mistakes NOT to take ... many of us do this via Skype.

Currently the process takes a minimum of 7 months. You do not need an attorney. However, retained representation makes the process efficient. For instance being provided a list of supporting documents based on your personal situation rather than having to study the process to determine what you need saves you time.
