The Standard Model (SM) describes fundamental particles. The Higgs boson is the only SM particle that has not yet been discovered. It part of the mechanism that explains how other particles gain mass. The precise mass value of the Higgs is incalculable. Experiments have been unable to observe it. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN will provide access to a new energy regime that will offer many channels for a potential discovery of the Higgs. The ``Golden mode'' for Higgs discovery features decay to two Z particles, with both Zs decaying to leptonic final states. An attempt is made to explore analyses of Higgs decay kinematics that may be more sensitive to the Higgs signal. Since data does not yet exist, analysis is done with Monte Carlo generated events. The analysis presented here will focus on Higgs decaying to two or more leptons, and will develop a kinematical signature for this production channel for events collected in an integrated luminosity of 1 inverse femtobarn.
