One must remember that Anna is no normal 13 year old. She has lived a very adult life. She is, in some ways wise beyond her years. Any child of 13 has the capacity to look up the yellow pages, or equivalent, and one must remember that in the states lawyers openly advertise on tv and what 13 year old does not have access. As for how does she hire one - an explanation is given in the book.
