Can I sue my former client for OT wages?

Question Details: The contract I had with my previous client stated that neither party could terminate the agreement without 30 days notice. My client did, in fact, terminate the agreement last week with no notice. I worked as a consultant on an hourly basis and I averaged 65 billing hours per week. As such, I invoiced the 30 days at that rate and the client has asked that I reduce it to a 40 hour week basis. Had they simply given me notice, I would be working the next 30 days on a 65-hour week basis. So is it not just that I invoice them based on that? After all, they broke the agreement.
