Any individual called to testify before a grand jury or special inquiry judge, whether
as a witness or principal, if not represented by an attorney appearing with the witness
before the grand jury or special inquiry judge, must be told of his or her privilege
against self-incrimination. Such an individual has a right to representation by an attorney to advise him or
her as to his or her rights, obligations, and duties before the grand jury or special
inquiry judge, and must be informed of this right. The attorney may be present during all proceedings attended by his or her client
unless immunity has been granted pursuant to RCW 10.27.130. After immunity has been granted, such an individual may leave the grand jury room
to confer with his or her attorney.
