I have not been in a situation to litigate... but here are my thoughts:
Think about one of the possible negatives as a positive. That is, public disclosure can be empowering, not always a "hazard," as you say.
Even if you lose, it will be a great example to other survivors and a warning shot to other potential perps. Your disclosure and court case could rescue and save untold numbers of kids from abuse.
Let us know if we can help.
"There is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces... even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar." -- from Moby-Dick
