The full data-set collected by the ATLAS detector in 2012 is analyzed to search for Lepton Flavor Violating (LFV) decays of the 125 GeV Higgs boson in final states of $\tau_{had} + \mu$ and $\tau_{had} + e$. The search is based on data samples of proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt s = $ 8 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $20.3 fb^{-1}$. A cut-based approach is used, optimized to exploit the topology of LFV events, with signal and control regions defined by event kinematics.
