Several models of elementary particle physics beyond the Standard Model, predict the existence of neutral particles that can decay in jets of leptons and light hadrons (lepton-jets). The present contribution collects the results about the lepton-jet search with the ATLAS experiment at the proton-proton LHC collider at √s = 8 TeV during the entire 2012 data taking (20 fb−1). No excess of events have been observed over the expected background and the exclusion limits for two different models, that predict the Higgs boson to decay in lepton-jets, have been computed. A new lepton-jet search is underway for the new LHC era at (√s = 13 TeV).
