First, you need to hire an attorney in DE and believe it or not $1000 is about the going price. Second, you need to file a motion for discovery for the handwritten statement on which the police report has been based because it is actually an official statement and it has to be made available to you as part of your discovery rights before trial. Third, you need to just show up with your witnesses and when they disprove the case, you ask the judge to charge her with filing a false police report. AS far as suing her, your attorney was right, you would end up with just a costly piece of paper against her with no way to collect upon it.
You also need to seek a restraining order against her from both courts. I do not believe this will end up going anywhere, but unfortunately you are stuck paying the attorneys fees for the matter, but be lucky that is all you are paying. Once you blow her out at the criminal trials she will not have a leg to stand on if she tries to sue you in civil court for this and this is why having good attorneys is critical.
The best place to look for attorneys is the same site used by other attorneys http://www.martindale.com
Unfortunately, we cannot give out personal recommendations on this site and I really have no contacts in DE anyhow.
