Biomedical engineer as biotech?

I am a 1st year student at a tier 1 law school with decent grades (top 30 – 40% most likely).  As an undergrad, I majored in biomedical engineering.  My grades weren’t the best, but they were above a 3.0   I did bioinformatics research for 3 years during my undergrad and after graduation worked as a researcher full time in a genetics lab for over a year.  I have also been published in a journal.  This summer, I am interning at one of the nation’s top research hospitals in their IP department.  My questions to anyone in IP doing firm hiring is
1)I know that straight biology majors are having a hard time getting a job without a PhD.  Do I stand a chance at obtaining a job without a PhD because of my engineering background
2)Do firms actually differentiate when hiring between people that will work on “medical devices” vs the more “****” sciences?
3) Will firms shun at the fact that after my 1st year of law school, I did not work at a firm, but instead worked for a research institution?
Thanks so much for any input!  After reading this forum, I quite frankly am pretty scared at my job outlook
