A verbal contract is enforceable. It is just more difficult to prove. So, yes, he could sue if you are in breach of contract for failing to deliver on the promised timeline.
It would be a defense you could assert if the delays were the client's fault.

At this point all you can do is wait and see if he files. If he does hire your own attorney and defend his claim.
