There is no overriding WA state law I'm afraid. The contract controls....too bad it didn't have a penalty clause. Lien is the obvious way of course, unless you just bring suit. If you start a potentially libelous campaign, I don't think it will help your cause....it will probably hurt it actually.
Those are my thoughts....if you want to discuss further, ask away.
