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.
But he grew old, this knight so bold / And upon his heart a shadow / Fell as he found no spot on the ground / That looked like El Dorado.
