Silberman is a Republican and a judge on the Second District Court of Appeal in Florida. He was appointed by Jeb Bush in 2001. There is not much information about his views available online. It can be assumed that he embraces Republican principles. A poll of the members of the Florida Bar voted 94% to retain him in his position.

Judge Silberman was present at a banquet honoring Judge George Greer, who was given a "Special Justice Award" for, in part, his handling of the emotionally and politically charged Schiavo case." Silberman was quoted as saying, "What Judge Greer did, and what judges in general do, is they look for guidance in the law, and they come up with the best answers they can within the law."
