There is really no way to give you anything close to good advice with the sparse facts here, but typically, when I have a client with multiple cases, and there isn't a good chance for dismissal, then I try to get a global offer for a guilty plea.

I would need more information to properly answer this question, especially, if we are dealing with an out of state case. You need to consult with an attorney directly.
What are the two states involved? How certain are you that one will be dismissed? If one gets dismissed, will that still leave two cases in two different states?
With the facts presented, I could not give you answer to your question. I would advise 3-5 AA Meetings per week... Bring proof of the AA Meetings with you to court. AA Meetings are like insurance, they might not help but it won't hurt you in court. It shows voluntary action by your part.
