He studied law with Rufus P. Spalding.[1] He was admitted to the bar in 1836 and commenced practice in Ravenna, Ohio. He formed a partnership there as Spalding & Tilden.[1] He served as prosecuting attorney of Portage County 1838-1841.

Tilden was elected as a Whig to the Twenty-eighth and Twenty-ninth Congresses (March 4, 1843 – March 3, 1847). He served as delegate to the Whig National Convention in 1848 and 1852. He moved to Cleveland, Ohio, in 1852.

Tilden was elected probate judge of Cuyahoga County and served from 1855 to 1888. He died in Cleveland, Ohio, March 4, 1890. His remains were cremated at Buffalo, New York, and the ashes deposited in the Buffalo Crematory.
