Since nobody can post anonymously in this forum, you won't get many responses to your question here.

Most of the richest lawyers didn't make their money practicing law. Of those who did, the very top are high-end plaintiff's lawyers, but those don't have a "salary." Of lawyers who make the highest actual steady salary from practice, the highest would be top NYC M&A rainmaker who has negotiated a guaranteed distribution for some period of time.

Richest person with a JD I know isnt a lawyer

Richest lawyers I know are partners at law firms who have inherited wealth (i.e., didn’t become wealthy from their own incomes). Richest lawyer I know who made his money practicing law is a named partner of a well-known litigation firm.
