Inspired by a significance of $2.4\sigma$ for the $h\to \mu \tau$ decay

observed by the CMS experiment at $\sqrt{s} = 8$ TeV, we investigate the

Higgs lepton-flavor-violating effects in a generic two-Higgs-doublet model

(2HDM), where the lepton-flavor-changing neutral currents are induced at the

tree level and arise from Yukawa sector. To understand the influence of all

involving free parameters and to realize their correlations, we employ

$\chi$-square fitting approach by including theoretical and experimental

constraints. The bounds from Higgs data play the major limits. With

parameter values that simultaneously satisfy the Higgs bounds and the CMS

excess of the Higgs coupling to $\mu$-$\tau$, we find that the tree-level

$\tau\to 3\mu$ and the loop-induced $\tau\to \mu \gamma$ decays are

consistent with current experimental upper limits; the discrepancy in muon

$g-2$ between experimental results and standard model predictions can be

resolved, and an interesting relation between muon $g-2$ and the

branching ratio (BR) for $\mu\to e \gamma$ is found.
