Pineapple Support has announced that the law firm it has retained to handle its legal obligations, Corey D. Silverstein's firm Silverstein Legal, will be made available to Pineapple Support clients who require legal services at special rates.
Launched in response to the several lives lost to suicide in the adult industry, Pineapple Support provides free mental health support, psychotherapy and counseling to all persons working in the adult online entertainment industry. Founder of the non-profit Leya Tanit stated, “Without discrimination, judgment or stigma, Pineapple Support will alleviate the isolation felt by many performers.”
Silverstein Legal was founded in 2006 by industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein and prides itself as being a boutique law firm representing all facets of the adult industry. The services Silverstein Legal provides include business law, civil litigation, contracts, criminal defense, dispute resolution, entertainment law, internet law, intellectual property, first amendment (free speech), media law, and more. More information about Silverstein Legal and adult industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein can be found at MyAdultAttorney.com.
“Mental health and support services has often been a neglected area in the adult industry and it’s clear that Pineapple Support is being built to quickly fill the gap.” said Silverstein. “In speaking with and getting to know Leya Tanit, it became clear to me that Leya’s passion and desire to improve support services for performers is the driving force in her life. Leya inspired me to want to help, which is why I’m very pleased to announce that Silverstein Legal will offer special rates for Pineapple Support clients who are seeking legal services.”
“Corey D Silverstein is a well-known and respected figure in the adult industry. When he offered not only his counsel to Pineapple Support but to provide our clients with special rates, I was overwhelmed by his kindness and generosity,” said Leya. “Finding an attorney with such extensive knowledge of the adult industry is extremely hard and generally expensive. Corey’s help has allowed Pineapple Support to free up much needed resources and enabled us to provide therapy to more performers and producers who need our help. Extending his offer of special legal rates to all of those coming to us for emotional support and therapy helps to ensure a level of safety and education that I know will make a huge difference to many in the industry.”
Pineapple Support is a Delaware non-profit in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status, tentatively expecting completion in early 2019.
