May v. Sessums & Mason P.A.


700 So. 2d 22 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 1997)


Client in executing a written agreement did not contractually bind herself to pay an “additional” fee and, therefore, cannot be liable for a breach of contract action when she refused to pay such a fee.  Having specifically contracted to pay fees on an hourly basis client cannot be liable on an implied contract or quantum merit theory to pay additional fees.
