Write off Professional Fees on Schedule C?

Level 7

Client paid a financial company $3,114 for "personal" financial services. Client also is a sole proprietor with a DBA who has nothing on his return but a Schedule C. Could this fee paid to the financial company be written off on the schedule C as a business expense for professional fees?
