Cid Kallen
Territorial Law

Since earning his J.D. and being admitted to practice law in Arizona, Attorney Cid R. Kallen has established a successful legal career thanks to his diverse background and extensive professional experiences.

Before attending law school, Cid served in the United States Marine Corps in various positions between 1999 and 2004. During the latter half of his military service, Cid enrolled in Southern Illinois University Carbondale and earned his B.S. in Electronics Systems Technologies. He also completed Duquesne University School of Law and China University of Political Science & Law’s Chinese Law Program in Beijing in 2007. Throughout law school, Cid held various legal positions, serving as a judicial intern for Judge Samuel A. Thumma, Superior Court of Arizona and as a legal intern for the City of Glendale’s Prosecutor’s Office. After graduating in 2009, he joined the Office of the Legal Defender in Yuma County as an assistant legal defender. He went on to serve as Assistant Federal Public Defender with the Federal Public Defender, District of Arizona.

In 2013, Cid founded his own private practice, Kallen Law, P.L.L.C. based in Yuma. Since then, the firm has grown into what is now Territorial Law, L.L.C. Cid manages a significant caseload while performing duties as the managing partner, including business development, staff and personnel management, and daily office work.

When representing clients, Cid’s highest priority is to inform and educate them. His goal for each client is to fully understand their situation and the law as it applies to their case. He works tirelessly to master the details of every case, striving to learn the facts and applicable law better than anyone else in the courtroom.

Outside of work, Cid loves to spend time with his family and friends. His hobbies include bass fishing, motorcycle road racing, and restoring old motorcycles.
