Two 3-Way Switches / One Double Gang Box

Hi All

Trying to remediate something my electrician can't seem to remedy. I'll do my best to describe the set up, but basically the lights off the double gang with both three ways flicker and/or short out. All lights are LED and mostly CREE CR6.

A-Three Gang
A.1-dimmer controlling 2 pendant lights
A.2-dimmer controlling 7 cans
A.3-dimmer controlling 1 can (3-way)

B-Two Gang
B.1-rocker controlling 2 exterior sconces
B.2-rocker controlling 2 LED fixtures (3-way)

C-Two Gang (contains the other end of both 3-ways)
C.1-dimmer controlling 1 can (A.3 above)
C.2-rocker controlling 2 LED (B.2 above)

Each three way is on a different electric leg. When A.3/C.1 is on and A.1 is on A.3/C.1 flickers when it's dimmed to less than 75%. While it's flickering if I turn on B.2/C.2 and shorts out and the fixture is dead.

All other lights above have no issues or flickering etc. It all seems to be associated to the two 3-ways in the double gang?

Any ideas? My electrician has been out once, said it was fine, then a week later the flickering occurred and we're out another light. Starting to add up $$$.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Some dimmer switches don't play well with led. Be sure you get dimmers that are led rated. If any lighted switches the same thing.

Thank you! All dimmers are Lutron Maestro and are noted as compatible with the lights we installed.
