I am a born US Citizen, and married my wife that came into the country with a visa a few years back but stayed. I know I have to file I-130 and I-485 but was wondering if we could file first I-130 and I-785 and then later one file I-485? and is the process faster with a lawyer or if I file myself and whats your cost?
She may be eligible to file her adjustment of status application at the same time you file the petition. However, to know for sure, you'll need to consult with an immigration attorney. You'll need to reach out to each attorney to learn their rates - it's unethical to solicit you.

No. You have to either only file I-130 and the rest of the forms whenever you are ready or I-130 and I485 along with the I765 and I131 if she needs EAD and travel document.

You can actually file all of those together. It's MUCH faster that way.
It would be faster with a lawyer only because the lawyer knows the procedure and what documentation is required.
All attorneys charge different prices and although we cannot solicit on here, feel free to reach out to attorneys yourself so you can get the best quote! These cases are usually flat fee.

You can file I130 along but this does not mean an application for adjustment of status but just establishes your relationship to your wide
You can file I130, I485, I765, I131 all together and you do not need to pay separate fees for the I131/I765.

Yes you can file all 4 forms together in one envelope. However, if you do not, the I131 or I765 attach to I485 not I-130 and can only be filed together with it or after the I485 has been filed.
