Should I pursue law or medicine?

I have the good fortune to be a double admit to several T14 law schools and over 8 top medical schools. I have a rare genetic disease that I’ve created a sustainable treatment for, have VC backing, etc., and am not sure what makes more sense as I look ahead to clinical trials. I do not want to be in biotech forever, but I am interested in getting a few treatments through to market. I was advised that an MD is more useful than a JD in terms of translational medicine, however I’m naturally quite argumentative and I like the idea of slaying people with my words. I know I will be in business permanently as it’s my biggest joy, but I also want a stable profession. With clinical trials phase 1-4 as they are, it could be 7-12 years until my innovations hit the market. Would it not look better and be easier to market said innovations as a doctor instead of an attorney? Any advice would be appreciated because I’ve sent deposits already and classes start soon.
